New Delhi. Ravindra Jadeja returned after 5 months and played an important role in helping Team India win. Apart from taking 7 wickets in the first Test against Australia (IND vs AUS), he also played an unmatched inning of 70 runs. India won the match by an innings and 132 runs. Meanwhile, the ICC has given a tough verdict on Jadeja. He has got one D-merit point and will also have to pay a fine of 25 per cent of the match fee. During bowling, Jadeja had applied cream on his finger and during this he also had a ball in his hand. In such a situation, according to the ICC rules, he has been considered guilty. However, the ICC appeared satisfied that Jadeja did not apply any foreign substance to the ball.
According to the news of Cricinfo, the ICC officiating team considered Ravindra Jadeja guilty because he used a cream-like thing without informing the on-field umpires. For this reason, apart from D-merit marks, they will also have to pay fine. Even former Australia captain Tim Paine and former England captain Michael Vaughan raised questions regarding this issue.
It is known that a video went viral on the first day of the match. It was seen that Ravindra Jadeja is applying the cream on the hand of fast bowler Mohammad Siraj to his finger. During this he also had a ball in his hand. Taking a dig at this, former England captain Vaughan wrote that what is he putting on his spinner finger? Never seen anything like this. At the same time, former Australian captain Tim Paine wrote that it is an interesting case.
