Anderson charged for alleged push in 1st test

July 15, 2014

LONDON (AP) — The ICC says England bowler James Anderson has been charged under the governing body’s code of conduct for allegedly abusing and pushing India’s Ravindra Jadeja during the drawn first test as they left the field for lunch on day two at Trent Bridge.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) says Anderson “categorically denies the accusations” and adds it “has notified the ICC of its intention to lodge code of conduct breaches against Jadeja.”

The ICC says on its website Tuesday that it “will appoint a judicial commissioner who will hold a hearing as soon as reasonably practicable.”

Anderson could be banned for up to four test matches if the Level 3 charges against him are proven.

The second test between England and India starts Thursday at Lord’s.
