Ravindra Jadeja Charged For Trent Bridge Incident
One day after England's James Anderson was charged with a breach of Level 3 of the ICC Code of Conduct, India's all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been charged with a breach of Level 2 of the same Code of Conduct.
Both players have been charged by the opposition's team management following an incident that is alleged to have taken place on day two of the first Test between the two sides at Trent Bridge.
"Jadeja has been charged for his alleged altercation with England’s James Anderson after they left the field for lunch on Thursday," an International Cricket Council statement explained.
"It is alleged that after the players left the public area and entered the pavilion, Jadeja turned suddenly and took steps towards Anderson in an aggressive and threatening manner."
Anderson was charged with a breach of Level 3 for allegedly abusing and pushing Jadeja, after which the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) publicly supported Anderson and issued a statement revealing they would be charging Jadeja - which they have now done.
A Level 2 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct carries a maximum penalty of a suspension of one Test or two ODIs.
