The six Pakistan players who have appealed against the punishments handed out by the PCB will appear before a one-man tribunal on Friday. The tribunal will be chaired by Irfan Qadir, a former retired high court judge who was appointed to the task by the PCB last week.

"I have issued notices to the players to appear on Friday for a preliminary proceeding on their appeals and they will be given all basic rights under the law," Qadir told AFP. "If some of the players demand specific reasons for their punishment, we will provide them with that as well, as this is their right."

The PCB took action against seven players it believed were responsible for Pakistan's failure to win a single game in Australia. The captain Mohammad Yousuf and Younis Khan were banned indefinitely, Shoaib Malik and Naved-ul-Hasan were banned for a year while Shahid Afridi and the Akmal brothers were fined and placed on probation for six months.

Yousuf and Younis were accused of infighting and having a negative influence on the team. Yousuf announced his retirement from international cricket after the ban and is the only one among the punished players who didn't appeal.

The Akmal brothers and Naved lodged their appeals first, followed by Afridi, Younis and then Malik.
