The International Cricket Council (ICC) has now appointed Gordon Lewis as the Judicial Commissioner for the James Anderson-Ravindra Jadeja case. The Australian has experience in cricketing matters as he had investigated the confrontation between David Warner and Joe Root last year.

During the Trent Bridge Test between India and England recently, it was alleged by India that Anderson had hurled abuses at Jadeja and had pushed him. Though reports suggest that India made the complaint within 24 hours of the incident, it only came to light much later.

In reply, England too have filed a complaint against the Indian all-rounder for allegedly charging at Anderson. Both the players have been charged by the ICC for offences under the Code of Conduct. Meanwhile, the two teams are facing off in the second Test at Lord’s. Both Anderson and Jadeja are playing that game.
