Rajeev Shukla: BCCI will take up Jadeja penalty issue with ICC
BCCI vice president Rajeev Shukla reiterated on Saturday that the board will appeal to the ICC against its decision to penalise Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja for his altercation with England pacer James Anderson during the first Test at Trent Bridge.
"Board will go for appeal in ICC. We will put forward our case before ICC and we hope that justice will be done with Jadeja.
"Right now it won't be appropriate for me to comment about it, but I think injustice has been meted out to Jadeja and we will fight it out in the ICC," Shukla said.
Jadeja was docked 50 per cent of his match fee by match referee David Boon for the incident with Anderson after the player was not found guilty of the original level 2 offence charged by the England team management.
The incident occurred during the lunch break at Nottingham when the Indians allege that Anderson "abused" and "pushed" Jadeja as the players were making their way into the dressing rooms.
