Brisbane:Former Queensland all-rounder Brett Henschell, will face a District Court trial in Brisbane over an alleged $8 million superannuation fraud.

The 43-year-old former first-class cricketer along with some of the Commonwealth Bank's former employees and customers were involved in a two-week committal hearing in Brisbane Magistrates Court that concluded today.

The alleged fraud was discovered following a two-year investigation by the bank and Queensland police against the Commonwealth Bank's key superannuation funds.

Henschell's, biggest claim to fame is that he dismissed England stalwarts Allan Lamb and Ian Botham after being picked for the Prime Minister's XI against England in 1986.

He accumulated 2720 runs at an average of 29.56 and claimed 87 wickets at an average of 43.96.
