The International Cricket Council says England bowler James Anderson will face a full disciplinary hearing on Aug. 1 on a charge of pushing and abusing India’s Ravindra Jadeja.
A preliminary hearing on Tuesday set the date.
Anderson is alleged to have pushed Jadeja when the teams
were leaving the pitch at lunch on day two of the first test at Trent Bridge.
If the level three charge is upheld, Anderson could be banned for four tests. The hearing is set for the day after the scheduled conclusion of the third test at Southampton.
England responded to India’s complaint with a level two charge against Jadeja. The ICC says it is still working out the details of Jadeja’s hearing. Jadeja faces a one-test ban and a fine of 50 to 100 percent of his match fee.
