India all-rounder Ravi Jadeja was fined 50 percent of his first Test match fee after being found guilty of a level one breach of the ICC code of conduct, but the BCCI are not having it and plan to appeal.

Jadeja was involved in an altercation with England fast bowler James Anderson on day two of the Trent Bridge match, and while Anderson's level 3 hearing will take place on 1 August, Jadeja was fined after a hearing on Thursday.

The charge had been dropped from a level 2 offence by match referee David Boon, saying there wasn't enough evidence to support a match ban, but the BCCI were still not happy, saying Jadeja had done nothing wrong at all.

The BCCI said: "The BCCI has taken note of the ICC Match Referee's decision to find Ravindra Jadeja guilty of a Level 1 'Breach of Conduct' for his involvement in an incident on the second day of the Nottingham Test of the ongoing series between India and England.

"The BCCI wishes to make it clear that it is not satisfied with the verdict. The BCCI reserves its right to appeal against the sentence.

"The BCCI believes that Mr. Ravindra Jadeja was not at fault, and supports him fully."

This comes despite the ICC statement saying Boon's ruling in this matter was 'non-appealable'.
