Ravindra Jadeja has been fined 25% of his Match Fee

In addition, that’s what ICC said: “In arriving at his choice to endorse the player alongside the Level 1 approval he forced, the Match Ref was fulfilled that the cream was applied to the finger only for clinical purposes.”

“The cream was not applied as a counterfeit substance to the ball and thusly it didn’t change the state of the ball, which would have been in the break of proviso 41.3 of the ICC playing conditions – – Unjustifiable Play-The Match Ball – – Changing its Condition,” added more.
