The BCCI has indicated that it will pursue legal action on the Jadeja–Anderson case in accordance with the expectations of millions of Indian cricket fans. The board’s secretary Sanjay Patel has clearly said that they are looking at all the legal angles.
He said, “We are expected to receive a detailed copy of the order that was passed by the Judicial Commissioner either by today or tomorrow. We will only be able to take a call in this regard after receiving the order copy. A detailed legal analysis is required before deciding on future course. Our legal team will study the report and will give us a feedback. In such cases, every point needs to be studied minutely and it will take some time. So it is premature to conclude whether we will appeal. It will be inappropriate to say that it has been unfair without going through the copy of the judgement. Let us wait for the written copy.”
As per ICC guidelines, only ICC CEO Dave Richardson has a right to appeal but he will need the permission of newly appointed ICC chairman N. Srinivasan. This has become a prestige issue for the Indians now and they would be hoping for a favorable and just outcome.
