International Cricket Council (ICC) has asked all relevant parties to respect the decisions that are made by them in relation to the controversy that took place in the first Test. The request was made after Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s public comments about how he was unhappy with the fine imposed on Ravindra Jadeja.

 

“The ICC would also like to reiterate its full support of the process followed and respect for the decision made by David Boon. ICC Code of Conduct hearings of this nature are, generally speaking, difficult processes to work through, with detailed legal submissions, witness statements and oral witness testimony. We are satisfied that Mr Boon carefully and comprehensively considered the evidence and submissions presented to him at the hearing, which included conflicting evidence from both sides, prior to making his decision.”, read the statement made by ICC chief executive David Richardson.

 

Both Alastair Cook and Mahendra Singh Dhoni had filed complaints, and while Jadeja has been fined 50% of his match fee, Anderson’s hearing will take place on August 1, 2014.
