Anderson admitted to abusing Jadeja

Anderson admitted  to abusing Jadeja

He may have been let off after an ICC hearing but it has now come to light that James Anderson did admit to abusing Ravindra Jadeja during their altercation during the opening Test.

“...he (Anderson) admitted to having continuously abused Jadeja, pushing him and acting in breach of the spirit of cricket. He also threatened to break Jadeja’s teeth, the BCCI’s counsel contended while appealing the sentence earlier handed to Jadeja by match referee David Boon,” a report in cricinfo said.

“These were two different but overlapping cases. The BCCI counsel took part in the appeal against Jadeja’s sentence, but the case involving Anderson was pursued by the ICC’s lawyer, as is the protocol for Level 3 charges.

“The BCCI counsel didn’t get a chance to cross-examine Anderson during that main case but did so during the Jadeja appeal.

“The cross-examination was intense and aggressive, say those present, and began with the BCCI counsel addressing Anderson using some of the swear words allegedly used by the player, catching him by surprise,” he added.
