BBC Radio 5 live's Pat Murphy said: "Both the ECB and the Indian board have tried to resolve the situation amicably but I understand Indian captain MS Dhoni is determined to push the matter forward.

"Anderson says Jadeja moved towards him in a threatening manner as the players went up the pavilion steps for lunch. Anderson put his hands up in defence and it was all over in a couple of seconds."

The England-India test series continues with four more tests, concluding August 19.

If Anderson is found guilty, he could be banned for as many as four tests. 

The first test of the series ended in a draw.
