Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who was embroiled in an alleged altercation with James Anderson, now faces charges under Level Two of the ICC Code of Conduct. This just a day after Anderson was slapped with a similar charge by the Indian team manager.

Phil Neale, team manager  of England, levelled the charge against Jadeja for the same incident that is alleged to have taken place on Day Two of the first Test at Trent Bridge.

The offence will be classified under Article 2.2.11 of the ICC Code of Conduct. According to the Article, a player may be charged in the following scenario: “Where the facts of the alleged incident are not adequately or clearly covered by any of the above offences, conduct that either: (a) is contrary to the spirit of the game; or (b) brings the game into disrepute.”

According to the allegation by Neale, it was Jadeja who started the confrontation when he threatened Anderson by advancing towards the bowler at the lunch break. If found guilty, Jadeja could face a fine of 50-100 percent of his Match Fee and/or a ban of either two One-Day Internationals (ODIs), or one Test depending on which comes first.
