[Ravindra Jadeja has been penalised 25% of his match fee and handed a demerit point for breaching Article 2.20 of International Cricket Counsil's code of conduct for players during the first Test against Australia. The clause relates to displaying conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game.

The incident in question took place in the 46th over of day one of the Test, when Australia's first innings was on. Ravindra Jadeja was seen applying a pain-relief (cream) ointment - on the index finger of his bowling hand. Images from the broadcast showed Ravindra Jadeja taking a substance off Mohammed Siraj's hand and using it - but He not putting it on the ball.
