Anderson May Face Two Test Match Ban

England seam lead James Anderson may have to faced ban of two to four Tests as he is charged with a level three sin for supposedly abusing India`s cricketer Ravindra Jadeja in the first cricket Test match at Trent Bridge. The pacer is charged with Level 3 crime of ICC Code of Conduct. India’s team manager Sunil Dev is following the suspected incident that had taken place on the second day of the first test match.

If the crime is proved, Anderson will have to face a ban of two to four Tests or four to eight One Day internationals. However England Cricket Board is denying the allegation made on the pacer. According to ECB, they are supporting Anderson.

The alleged crime on Anderson is reported under cricket’s Article 2.3.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which tells: "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".

"It is assumed that it was a continuance of an oral argument between James Anderson and Ravinder Jadeja as they were going away from the field," the ICC said in a recent statement.
