Date set for tampering hearing

September 27 and 28 has been set as the date for the hearing into the controversial ball-tampering incident during the recent Test at The Oval between England and Pakistan.

The chief executive of the International Cricket Council, Malcolm Speed, announced the date during the launching of the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy.

Ranjan Madugalle, who was forced to return home in the aftermath of the incident at The Oval for personal reasons, will chair the hearing.

Speed also stated that video evidence would not necessarily be needed to find the Pakistanis guilty of tampering with the ball. The ICC has raised the possibility of using forensic testing to determine whether the ball in question was altered illegally.
