India's Ravindra Jadeja fined for 1st test incident involving England bowler James Anderson

SOUTHAMPTON, England - The India cricket board wasn't satisfied with a guilty verdict against Ravindra Jadeja for an incident with England bowler James Anderson, and still believed its allrounder was not to blame.

The International Cricket Council released the decision on Friday, after a hearing the previous night involving both players.

Jadeja was found guilty of "conduct contrary to the spirit of the game" for a confrontation at lunch on day two of the first test at Trent Bridge, on July 10.

ICC match referee David Boon found Jadeja not guilty of the original level two charge, but guilty of a lesser level one offence, and fined him a maximum 50 per cent of his match fee.

"I was in no doubt that confrontation did occur, and that such conduct was not in the spirit of the game and should not have taken place," Boon said in an ICC release.

A first level one offence cannot be appealed, although the Board of Control for Cricket in India said it reserved that right.

"The BCCI wishes to make it clear that it is not satisfied with the verdict," honorary secretary Sanjay Patel said in a statement. "The BCCI believes that Jadeja was not at fault, and supports him fully."

Anderson, facing a level three charge and a possible four-test ban, has a disciplinary hearing on Aug. 1.

The third test starts in Southampton on Sunday.
