BCCI will take up Jadeja penalty issue with ICC
Mumbai: BCCI vice president Rajeev Shukla reiterated on Saturday that the board will appeal to the ICC against its decision to penalise Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja for his altercation with England pacer James Anderson during the first Test at Trent Bridge.
"Board will go for appeal in ICC. We will put forward our case before ICC and we hope that justice will be done with Mr Jadeja. Right now it won`t be appropriate for me to comment about it, but I think injustice has been meted out to Mr Jadeja and we will fight it out in the ICC," Shukla told reporters here after chairing a meeting of the BCCI`s Tour Programme and Fixtures Committee.
Jadeja was docked 50 per cent of his match fee by match referee David Boon for the incident with Anderson after the player was not found guilty of the original level 2 offence charged by the England team management.
The incident occurred during the lunch break at Nottingham when the Indians allege that Anderson "abused" and "pushed" Jadeja as the players were making their way into the dressing rooms.
The England team management, which initially described it as a "minor" incident, later filed a counter-charge.
The BCCI in a statement had said it was fully behind Jadeja after Boon found the player guilty of `conduct contrary to the spirit of the game`.
"The BCCI wishes to make it clear that it is not satisfied with the verdict. The BCCI reserves its right to appeal....The BCCI believes that Mr Ravindra Jadeja was not at fault, and supports him fully," it had said.
The ICC has set aside August 1 as the date to conduct the hearing of the complaint by the Indians against Anderson.
