Moeen Ali revealed the incident took place during the first Ashes Test in 2015 at Cardiff.
The abuse is supposed to have taken place during the first Test in Cardiff, where the all-rounder had scored crucial 77 while batting at No. 8 and claimed five wickets in the game as the hosts cantered to a 169-run win.
“But our eventual triumph and the Cardiff crowd’s reaction to me comforted me that the Australian player represented nobody.”
The off-spinner and left-handed batsman first came up against the infamously aggressive Australians in 2015 before his struggles with both bat and ball played a key role in England’s 4-0 Ashes defeat ‘Down Under’ in 2017/18, which led to him being dropped.
“Everyone you speak to…they are the only team I’ve played against my whole life that I’ve actually disliked,” said Moeen Ali.
