ICC find James Anderson, Ravindra Jadeja not guilty from incident at Trent Bridge test

  • Print

SOUTHAMPTON, England - England bowler James Anderson and India allrounder Ravindra Jadeja were found not guilty by the International Cricket Council on Friday of misbehaviour in the first test at Trent Bridge three weeks ago.

Anderson was accused of pushing and abusing Jadeja three weeks ago, and faced a ban of up to four tests. Jadeja was appealing a 50 per cent match-fee fine stemming from the incident.

But all charges were dismissed by ICC judicial commissioner Gordon Lewis following a hearing on Friday.

The ICC announced in a release there were no breaches of its code of conduct following a six-hour hearing by video conference.

That freed Anderson for the rest of the five-test series, including the fourth test at his home ground of Old Trafford next week. That was a major relief for England after his man-of-the-match performance at the Rose Bowl helped the hosts win the third test by 266 runs on Thursday and even the series at 1-1.

Anderson and Jadeja exchanged words as they left the field at lunch on day two of the first test at Nottingham, and it was alleged the spat became physical in the pavilion stairwell out of public view.

The hearing involved both players, witnesses from both teams, the team managers, legal counsel, and ICC heads.
