Stung by criticisms from MS Dhoni and Alastair Cook on the Ravindra Jadeja-James Anderson row, the ICC has asked for both the Indian and English captains to show restraint and have respect in the judicial process that went into the supposed altercation during the first Test in Nottingham.
MS Dhoni has criticized the ICC’s verdict to fine Jadeja 50 % of his match fee for the all-rounder’s getting into an altercation with Anderson. Dhoni criticized the ICC says “a lot of things were neglected in judging the case”. The ICC urged all relevant persons to respect the judicial process in relation to the alleged incident that happened during the first Test at Trent Bridge, which has resulted in charges being brought against England’s James Anderson and India’s Ravindra Jadeja.
ICC chief executive Dave Richardson said the remarks made by MS Dhoni and Alastair Cook damage ICC’s disciplinary process. “England captain Alastair Cook and, more recently, India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni have made public comments relating to the alleged incident that took place during the first Test at Trent Bridge, the latter of which is critical of and undermines the ICC disciplinary process,” said Dave Richardson in a statement.
The ICC endorsed the choice of Match Referee David Boon to fine Ravindra Jadeja.
