London: The England and Wales Cricket Board has issued a statement which makes it clear James Anderson "categorically denies the accusations against him", and that in response it intends to lodge its own charge against Jadeja.
A Level 3 charge, if proven, can result in a ban for up to four Test matches for a first offence.
The ECB has also described the incident as "minor" — but an ICC press release subsequently confirmed the charge has been laid, and if appropriate a disciplinary hearing will be held before a judicial commissioner "as soon as reasonably practicable".
