In a rather strange development, both Ravindra Jadeja and James Anderson have been cleared by the ICC in the “pushgate” case. Contrary to the expectations of millions of Indian fans, Anderson has been given the all clear by the judicial commissioner.

Anderson was given a level three charge over claims he abused and pushed Jadeja during the first Test at Trent Bridge. Also, Jadeja was appealing against a monetary fine imposed for his part in the incident last month. Anderson could have faced a maximum four-Test ban if found guilty but he has escaped.

Both men were cleared following a six-hour hearing which took place via a video conference. This was spearheaded by judicial commissioner Gordon Lewis, who is based in Australia.

It appears that the BCCI’s stronghold has not been used in an optimum manner. Anderson was also involved in a verbal spat with Indian batsman Ajinkya Rahane at the end of the fourth day’s play in the third test. Umpire Rod Tucker had stepped in to tell both players to calm down.
