India alleges Anderson for ‘pushing’ and ‘abusing’ Jadeja; ECB wants to lodge the same complaint on Jadeja
England lead fast bowler, James Anderson has been reportedly allegedly for abusing and pushing Ravindra Jadeja immediately after the teams left of the field for lunch on Thursday, Day 2 of the first match played at Trent Bridge. After the game, Anderson has charged under Level 3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel by India team manager Sunil Dev.
The ECB also reacted over the incident quoting it India’s reporting on Anderson as a surprise which they described as a “minor incident” in a press release. The ECB also clarified its intention of lodging a complaint against Jadeja as well.
“James Anderson categorically denies the accusations made against him and the ECB have pledged their total support for the player should he be charged,” the board said.
India has alleged that this was continuation part of the verbal argument between Anderson and Jadeja while they were walking from the field.
The alleged offence will be reporting under Article 2.3.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which states: Where the facts of the alleged incident are not adequately or clearly covered by any of the above offences, conduct that either: (a) is contrary to the spirit of the game; or (b) brings the game into disrepute.
All the Level 3 charges will be referring by a Judicial Commissioner for final decision. As such, where required to be coming under Article 5.2 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, the ICC will appoint a Judicial Commissioner who will hold a hearing as soon as reasonably practicable. Details regarding this will be announced in the due course.
For all Level 3 breaches a penalty of between four and eight Suspension Points will be credited. For every two suspension points, the players receives a ban of one Test, or two ODIs, depending on the type of match which is scheduled next for the suspended player.
