Ravindra Jadeja was penalised 50 per cent of his match fee for an altercation with England bowler James Anderson in the first Test at Nottingham. Ravindra Jadeja was found raising his bat in the altercation.

With no sign of any side coming to terms, the Board of Control for Cricket in India has given a direct refusal in accepting ICC match referee David Boon‘s decision to fine Ravindra Jadeja 50 per cent of his match fee for an altercation with England bowler James Anderson in the first Test at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.

The ICC on Wednesday gave a confirmation that, after receiving legal submissions from the BCCI, they have decided to accept Jadeja’s request for an appeal against Boon’s decision. Jadeja was found guilty of an offence under Article 2.1.8 of the Code of Conduct and fined 50 per cent of his match fee as the offender.

The appeal will be heard at the same time as the disciplinary hearing taking place in respect of the charge against James Anderson on Friday August 1st, in Southampton. ICC judicial commissioner Gordon Lewis will oversee proceedings via videoconference and will find the truth of the situation.

Contrary to what Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni claimed during a press conference in Southampton on Saturday, reports have emerged that Jadeja had reacted violently and was even found raising his bat to strike Anderson.

According to a report in ESPNCricinfo, England witnesses Ben Stokes and Matt Prior suggested to Boon during a hearing that to them it seemed Jadeja had turned threateningly towards Anderson, and the England fast bowler had acted in self defence. Dhoni said Jadeja was never aggressive and kept his bat tucked under his arm so the fine against him is not just.

Stokes even claimed that Jadeja pushed Anderson first. With no video evidence available, the ICC judicial commissioner will have to depend solely on witnesses during the August 1 hearing on the Level 3 charge against Anderson. The pacer can be banned for up to four Tests if found guilty.
