Tasmania:Former Australian opener Matthew Elliott's appeal against Victoria's decision to refuse him permission to move to South Australia will be heard on May 5.

Gordon Lewis, Cricket Australia's (CA) Code of Behaviour commissioner will chair the tribunal. Judge Steven Skala, a former first-class player, will represent CA, while the Australian Cricketers' Association will have John McMullan as its representative.

The 33-year-old Elliott had began his first-class career with Victoria in 1992-93, and has a fairly good batting record having amassed 15,552 runs at an aggregate of 49.68. However, his Test record is not up to the standards with only 1172 runs from 21 matches at a relatively modest average of 33. 48.

It is worth recalling that Elliott had last month applied for a transfer from Victoria, his home state for 12 years, to South Australia.
