Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh's appeal against the three-Test ban will come up for hearing on January 29-30 at Adelaide, according to an ICC spokesman.
The much awaited hearing will be held immediately after the fourth and final Test between India and Australia.
Harbhajan, who was slapped a three-Test ban by Match Referee Mike Procter after he found him guilty of racially abusing Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds during the ill-tempered second Test in Sydney, had appealed against the ruling.
The ICC had appointed New Zealand High Court Judge John Henson as the Appeals Commissioner.
As per the ICC rules, the Appeals Commissioner has to conduct the hearing within seven days of his appointment but it could be extended, if the circumstances require.
Harbahajan's fate will be decided before the Indians go into the tri-series beginning from February 3 with Australia and Sri Lanka being the other teams.
