Southampton: The BCCI is all set to appeal against the Level 1 charge brought against Ravindra Jadeja for his alleged altercation with England fast bowler Jimmy Anderson during the first Test at Trent Bridge played between July 9-13.
There was an alleged altercation at the lunch break on one the second day of the first cricket Test where the Indian team management accused Anderson of a Level-3 offence as he had allegedly pushed Jadeja after an altercation. The England team filed a counter charge of Level 2 offence against Jadeja.
After hearing, ICC match referee David Boon had found Jadeja guilty of Level 1 offence and slapped a 50 percent fine on his match fee which India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni found unjustified.
The BCCI's legal eagles are working on the case as the BCCI will appeal against the verdict on August 1 - a day after the third Test ends.
On that particular day, Anderson's hearing of the Level 3 charges will also come up.
As per ESPN Cricinfo's report, "Indian officials believe the hearing will take place in Southampton with the judicial commissioner Gordon Lewis flying in from Australia. India will have Jadeja, MS Dhoni, their physiotherapist Evan Speechly and their coach Duncan Fletcher at the hearing, along with their lawyers."
