India unhappy with ICC’s verdict handed to James Anderson

India's cricket board says it is unhappy England's James Anderson was found not guilty of a breach of the code of conduct

India’s cricket board have written to the International Cricket Council to express their disappointment following the not guilty verdict handed to England’s James Anderson.

Anderson, 32, was cleared of breaching the code of conduct after an alleged incident with India’s Ravindra Jadeja.

It is up to ICC chief executive Dave Richardson whether or not to appeal the verdict, but the secretary of the BCCI, Sanjay Patel has insisted while they are unhappy with the decision, they have not expressly asked Richardson to appeal.

“What we have done is we’ve written a letter to the ICC saying we are not happy with the verdict,” said Patel.

“The code has not been properly followed. There are too many lacunas and points under which the order can be appealed. All these points have been explained in detail in that letter.”

The ICC has said it is ‘considering’ the written decision of the judicial commissioner and Richardson has until 10 August to lodge an appeal, should he see fit.

Both players are available to line up for their respective sides for the fourth Test match at Anderson’s home ground Old Trafford, which starts on Thursday.
