Melbourne (Australia): An Australian Cricket Board committee adjourned its hearing into the doping charge against Shane Warne late on Friday and is expected hand down its findings on Saturday morning. The three-person panel will consider the case against Warne overnight and is expected to reconvene at 11:00 am local time (24:00 GMT/ 5.30 am IST) on Saturday.

Warne faces a minimum two-year ban for testing positive to the stimulant, which can also conceal the use of steroids. Warne has claimed he took a diuretic pill given to him by his mother, who, media reports said, wanted her son to look good at a news conference prior to the team's departure for the World Cup last month.
