As James Anderson escaped any sort of censure for the ‘pushgate’ incident involving him and Ravindra Jadeja, the Indian cricket board (BCCI) feels it is time that the ICC Code of Conduct undergoes a complete revamp.
Patel’s remarks came after the ICC chose not to request against the verdict of Gordon Lewis, the Judicial Commissioner who regulated the James Anderson-Ravindra Jadeja case.
“As I see it, the ICC Code of Conduct needs to be revamped or rehauled, whatever you may call it,” Patel told Press Trust of India. “Right now the BCCI couldn’t have requested a request against the choice of the Judicial Commissioner. The litigant for this situation could have been just the ICC. It’s a huge blemish (in the process).”
Patel said the BCCI legal counselors have been asked to experience the whole Code of Conduct and propose territories in which it could be tightened.
“I have effectively asked our young men at the BCCI and our legal advisors to investigate the whole Code of Conduct process and figure out spots where it could be tightened,” he said. “When this is carried out we will be sending a mail to ICC recommending these progressions to be embraced for discourse at the right discussion of ICC, at whatever point it happens. Right now there is no planned gathering of ICC.”
One of the components that impacted Lewis’ choice was the absence of any CCTV footage, which implied there were no realities to help either India’s or England’s variants of the occasions, and Patel said the matter would be raised.
“I will likewise expound on the nonattendance of feature footage and demand this ought not to happen. This is just for the great legislation of the game,” he said.
India had laid a Level 3 charge against Anderson, charging that he had physically pushed and misused Jadeja amid the lunch break on day two of the first Test in Trent Bridge. Nonetheless, Lewis claimed both men not liable in the wake of listening to both sides of the story from India and England, portraying both sets of witnesses as “pitifully predispositioned”. Lewis additionally toppled the half match charge fine forced on Jadeja by David Boon, the ICC match official, after a six-hour hearing on August 1.
