Jadeja-Anderson Row: Jadeja fined 50 per cent match fee by ICC
The war of words between Ravindra Jadeja and James Anderson in the first Test match against England has proved costly for the Indian star as well, as the ICC has fined 50 percent of the match fee. Jadeja was found guilty under Article 2.1.8, which falls under level 1 breach.

The media statement issued by the ICC read, "India's Ravindra Jadeja has been found guilty of a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Code for Players and Player Support Personnel for his involvement in an incident with James Anderson during the second day of the first cricket Test against England at Trent Bridge on 10 July."

Originally, the Indian all-rounder had been originally reported by Phil Neale, England's team manager for a breach of the Article 2.2.11, which could have resulted in severe punishment, but Boon after witnessing the video footage found that it was not a level 2 offence but a level 1, so was punished accordingly.

Few days ago, ICC had charged Anderson for the same altercation, which took place between the two players at Trentbridge, for which the player could face a ban upto four Test matches or eight ODIs.

The player has been charged under level 3 of the ICC code of conduct. The player is said to have allegedly pushed and abused the Indian player in the pavilion, which might have been a major disciplinary breach.

As the player's hearing is only scheduled to take place on the 1st of August, he can represent England for the third Test match as well, which starts from 27 August.
