Harbhajan Singh and S Sreesanth have arrived in Ahmedabad to appear before the BCCI-appointed Commissioner Sudhir Nanavati, who would conduct the hearing into the slap-row involving the two players, on Friday.
The hearing is scheduled to begin at 1400 hrs at the Gujarat Law Society building.
Nanavati had said that he was shocked after viewing the video footage of the incident, which took place after an Indian Premier League (IPL) match at Mohali between Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab.
Harbhajan has already been banned for rest of the IPL series after match referee Farokh Engineer found him guilty of slapping Sreesanth.
Nanavati, an Ahmedabad-based lawyer has already recorded the statements of umpire Amish Saheba and Engineer.
He was appointed under the Rule 32 of the BCCI under which the Board president has the power to appoint a Commissioner to assist its disciplinary Committee.
The report submitted by Nanavati will be refereed to the BCCI disciplinary Committee after Board president Sharad Pawar goes through it.
The Committee will then decide on the action to be taken against the player.
