Fight between Jadeja and Anderson
London: Ravindra Jadeja and James Anderson saga is continuing after the end of the second Test match. In a fresh twist to the alleged fight between Ravindra Jadeja and James Anderson, two England players have given their judgement against Jadeja. They proclaimed that the Indian all-rounder had turned towards the English bowler with a raised bat during the showdown. So Ravindra Jadeja was the guilty party in the allegation.
According to a report in ESPNCricinfo, Ben Stokes and Matt Prior, the two England players, during the hearing gave their judgement against Jadeja, testified that the Indian raised his bat at Anderson during the altercation for which he was fined 50 per cent of his match fee. As Jadeja was found guilty it was obvious that he would be penalised.
Ravindra Jadeja, Sir of Indian cricket team is under the scrutiny of the latest controversy. Ravindra Jadeja, the all-rounder of Indian cricket team has to give 50 percent of his match fee. Anderson and Jadeja engaged themselves in a fight and Jadeja is suspected as the main offender in the allegation. Jadeja also showed tribute to Bruce Lee in the previous match.
As reporte by the websites, at the hearing England witnesses, Ben Stokes and Matt Prior, suggested to match referee David Boon that Jadeja had turned threateningly towards James Anderson, and the England fast bowler had acted in self defence. So it was proper for Anderson to protect him from sudden enrage from Jadeja.
The hearing on the level 3 charges against Anderson will be conducted on August 1 and where guilt of Anderson will scrutinised. The pacer allegedly pushed and abused Jadeja during the lunch break of the second day’s play in the opening Test in Nottingham. In the hearing, it will be seen to that Anderson’s guilt is punishable or not.
Prior contended that Jadeja’s bat was raised dangerously when he turned towards Anderson, and Stokes suggested that Jadeja had pushed Anderson first.
However, India claim Jadeja neither touched nor swore at anyone this was what we fetched from reports.
The entire case is based on testimonies of rival players as there is no video available of the incident. As no video is available so we have to depend upon player’s statement about the actual incident.
Jadeja’s fine has not gone down too well with the Indian team management and an appeal has been filed against the ICC ruling. As of now Jadeja is found guilty and is penalised half his match fee and this in turn will bring down his moral. This decision might affect the upcoming series but it is expected that truth of incident actually pops out infront of everyone.
