India’s Ravendra Jadeja banned for final Test against Sri Lanka

India has suffered a setback after their series win in the second Test at Colombo as all-rounder Ravendra Jadeja has been banned for one game by International Cricket Council (ICC). Jadeja was found guilty of section 2.2.8 of ICC Code of Conduct and will miss the final Test of the series at Pallekele.

He has been on the radar for various breaches as left-arm spinner was found guilty during New Zealand series played in India last year. He received demerit points in that series and now have been 50 percent of his game fee. He was found throwing the ball at the batsman but umpires found it offensive as Richie Richardson awarded the suspension.

Jadeja will have to wary in future as any more breaches could see him miss games across all three formats. The all-rounder forms a vital cog in the Indian Test team as Virat Kohli and co. have notched up eight consecutive series win after decimating Sri Lanka at Colombo.
