MS Dhoni Terms Ravindra Jadeja's Fine 'Hurtful'
India were hurting at the International Cricket Council's (ICC) decision to fine Ravindra Jadeja 50 percent of his match fee after the row with England's Jimmy Anderson, Mahendra Singh Dhoni said on Saturday.
The punishment was unjust and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) were looking into a possible appeal, Indian skipper Dhoni told reporters ahead of the third test at Southampton which starts on Sunday.
The Jadeja-Anderson altercation happened as the pair left the field during the drawn first test at Trent Bridge, Nottingham, earlier this month.

'Lot of things were neglected in judging the case'
David Boon, of the ICC's Match Referees Elite Panel, fined Jadeja but found him not guilty of the Level 2 offence with which he was originally charged but guilty of a Level 1 offence relating to "conduct contrary to the spirit of the game".
Anderson faces a Level 3 accusation, the ICC's highest disciplinary charge, and his hearing is set for August 1, at the end of the Southampton test. If found guilty, Anderson could be given a four-test ban.
"It's a very hurtful decision, frankly, because I felt a lot of things were neglected in judging the case," said Dhoni.
