Never-before-seen footage has revealed how Australian cricketers react to an ugly incident in the Long Room at Lord’s during the last Ashes series, with a player calling aggressive spectators «damn idiots».

Pat Cummins and wicketkeeper Alex Carey became public enemy No. 1 after Jonny Bairstow lashed out during the second Test match at Lord’s in London.
