Sydney: Shane Warne's high-profile drug case would be heard by Australian Cricket Board's anti-doping committee, Sydney on Saturday. Supreme Court Justice Bill Gillard is expected to head the three-member panel to decide Warne's fate in the game. A test on Warne, conducted by the Australian Sports Drug Agency, on January 22 revealed presence of the banned diuretics and the cricketer beat a hasty retreat from World Cup without playing even a single match.

Another test will be conducted on Warne's 'B' sample and if it also turns out to be positive, Warne risks a two-year ban from international cricket unless mitigating circumstances are proved.
