New Delhi: The investigating official who cross examined witnesses of James Anderson and Ravindra Jadeja  branded them as ‘hopelessly biased'.

After hearing of the much publicized spat between the two cricketers Gordon Lewis, the Australian judicial commissioner who presided over the tribunal, dropped all charges against the players.

Lewis reached his conclusion in 10 minutes after a six-hour hearing. He is  reported to have outlined in his written verdict that he could not be ‘comfortably satisfied' about the precise nature of the contretemps in the Trent Bridge pavilion last month. This was because there was no video evidence and the only neutral testimony, from one of the Nottinghamshire stewards, was inconclusive.
