Lancashire paceman Anderson, who had been at risk of being banned from the remainder of the England-India Test series, is now free to play in both the final two Tests while Jadeja has had his previously imposed fine of 50 percent of his match fee rescinded.

India charged Anderson and England counter-charged all-rounder Jadeja under the ICC code regarding an incident that took place during the lunch break on the second day of the drawn first Test at Trent Bridge on July 10.

The five-match series is currently level at 1-1 after England won the third Test at Southampton by 266 runs on Thursday.

The fourth Test at Old Trafford, Anderson's home ground, starts this coming Thursday, August 7.
