After being found not guilty during his hearing, England pace bowler James Anderson has admitted that he did indeed push and swear at India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja on the second day of the first Test in Nottingham.
It is also understood that Anderson threatened to break Jadeja’s teeth.
The incident took place when Anderson exchanged a few words with Jadeja after he was not given out. The tension between the two players intensified as both teams were walking off the pitch for lunch.
Anderson conceded that he had called Jadeja a “f***ing p**ck” and a “f***ing c**t”, and did not contest the charge at the hearing.
Anderson also did not contest India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s witness statement. Dhoni said that Anderson continued to abuse Jadeja and even told him to “go to his f***ing dressing room”.
The England pace bowler also admitted that his actions were against the spirit of cricket.
