England pace bowler James Anderson and India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja have both been found not guilty for their roles in an altercation during the second day of the first Test in Nottingham.

After a day of hearing evidence and submissions from both sides, judicial commissioner Gordon Lewis, who was listening to the testimony from Australia via Skype, only needed a matter of minutes to find both players not guilty.

Anderson could have missed the last two Test matches if he was found guilty.

It was also announced that neither team are allowed to appeal against the verdict.

“The Judicial Commissioner reached his decisions following a six-hour hearing, which took place via videoconference,” the International Cricket Council (ICC) said. “Witnesses, including some Indian and English players, provided evidence and were cross-examined by the respective legal counsels.”
