India have been allowed to appeal against all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja’s guilty verdict.

Jadeja was fined 50 per cent of his match fee for his role in the altercation with England pace bowler James Anderson during the second day of the first Test in Nottingham.

The hearing is expected to take place in Southampton on August 1. It was also announced that judicial commissioner Gordon Lewis will fly back from Australia for the hearing.

India will have Jadeja, captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, head coach Duncan Fletcher and physiotherapist Evan Speechly present during the hearing.
