The International Cricket Council's inquiry into the alleged physical altercation between England fat bowler James Anderson and India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja during the first Test at Trent Bridge will happen on Tuesday.

The incident reportedly happened shortly before the lunch break on day two of the series opener in Nottingham.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India have alleged Anderson verbally abused and pushed Jadeja, while the England and Wales Cricket Board have claimed the batsman approached the bowler in a threatening manner.

The 31-year-old Anderson has since been charged with a level three offence in the ICC's code of conduct. He will be banned for two, three or four Tests – or between four and eight ODIs – if found guilty.

The 25-year-old Jadeja, charged with a level two breach, might cop a 100 percent match fee fine and receive two suspension points, which equate to a ban of one Test – or two ODIs – if deemed culpable.

Judicial commissioner Gordon Lewis will preside over the hearing. Lewis also administered Australian batsman David Warner's suspension for trying to punch England batsman Joe Root during last year's Champions Trophy in the United Kingdom.
