ICC Considering Judicial Commissioner's Decision
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has confirmed they have received Judicial Commissioner Gordon Lewis AM's written decision following last week's hearing into James Anderson and Ravindra Jadeja.
Both players were cleared of breaching the ICC Code of Conduct and the ICC now have until Sunday, 10th August, to decide whether they wish to lodge an appeal against the decision.
The hearing took place after Anderson was charged with a Level 3 breach of the Code of Conduct while Jadeja successfully appealed against a Level 1 breach that he had been found guilty of earlier and fined 50 per cent of his match fee.
The charges related to an incident which occurred between the two players on day two of the first Test between England and India at Trent Bridge.
"The International Cricket Council (ICC) today confirmed that it has received and is considering the written decision of His Honor Gordon Lewis AM, the Judicial Commissioner, in respect of his findings that England’s James Anderson and Ravindra Jadeja of India were not guilty of breaching the ICC Code of Conduct and Player Support Personnel, following an exhaustive disciplinary hearing which was held in Southampton on Friday," a statement from the sport's governing body confirmed.
"As per Section 8.3.2 of the ICC Code of Conduct, ICC Chief Executive David Richardson has seven days – until Sunday, 10 August - to consider whether to lodge an appeal against the decision."
