Lahore: Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul Haq, team mates Umer Gul and Danish Kaneria, team manager in the England tour Zaheer Abbas and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shaharyar Khan will attend the ICC September 27-28 hearing in London regarding the ball tampering charges.

Meanwhile, the PCB chief remained cautious after ICC had issued a 'final warning'' against the top brass, asking them to refrain from making public statements over the vexed issue.

During the press conference, Mr Khan refused to take questions on the Oval Test controversy which saw Pakistan forfeiting the match after their initial decision not to take to the field.

''The matter is being probed and I would not like to comment on the issue,'' the PCB chief said.

He, however, announced that Inzamam and two other players, Gul and Kaneria, would attend the hearing along with sacked team manager Zaheer Abbas and the PCB chief himself.

Besides, PCB's London-based lawyers are also likely to be there during the hearing.

''The Oval Test incident was discussed in detail and various aspects were taken into consideration during the Ad-hoc Committee meeting,'' Mr Khan added.
