Date set for Anderson hearing
James Anderson faces the possibility of being banned from his home Test at Old Trafford after a date of August 1 was set for his International Cricket Council disciplinary hearing.
England fast bowler Anderson will be quizzed via teleconference by ICC judicial commissioner Gordon Lewis after being charged with a Level 3 offence for allegedly "abusing and pushing" India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja during the first Investec Test at Trent Bridge.
An initial hearing on Tuesday morning, also via teleconference and involving Anderson's legal representatives and others from the England and Wales Cricket Board and Board of Control for Cricket in India, "addressed preliminary issues" and set the date for the next stage of the disciplinary process.
A Level 3 charge, if proven, carries a penalty of up to a four-Test ban.
