Jadeja fined for applying cream without Umpire’s Permission

In addition to receiving a 25% match fee fine and one demerit point, Ravindra Jadeja was punished for placing an ointment on his finger without telling the umpires.

“The finger spinner was using the lotion to treat swelling on his index finger on his bowling hand, according to the India team’s management. The on-field umpires were not consulted prior to doing this, “According to a media release from the ICC. The ICC went on to say that the match official was confident that the cream had not been used for any other reason, which could have justified accusing Jadeja of ball tampering.

“When the Match Referee made the decision to sanction the player in addition to the Level 1 sanction he had given, he was confident that the cream had been applied to the finger solely for medical purposes. The cream did not alter the condition of the ball because it was not administered as an artificial product, which would have violated clause 41.3 of the ICC playing conditions, “the ICC statement said.

The incident happened at Nagpur during the first day’s play, in the 46th over. Social media videos showed Jadeja rubbing something on his left index finger while standing close to the umpire and captain Rohit Sharma. He had taken it from the back of Mohammad Siraj’s hand.
