The relations between the cricket boards ECB and BCCI have soured with each supporting their respective player.
ECB reacted with surprise and not only supported Anderson but also complained to the ICC against Ravindra Jadeja for the alleged altercation. The player has been charged with a Level 2 offence of the ICC Code of Conduct. Jadeja had allegedly took aggressive steps towards Anderson after leaving public area.
The ICC appointed a Judicial Commissioner to probe the charges, who will gather evidence for next 14 days. Which means both Jadeja and Anderson get to play second match with no prospect of a ban.
