Darrell Hair's claim that the ICC's decision to bar him from officiating in major international matches was racially-motivated will be heard by an employment tribunal in London starting on October 1. The hearing is expected to last around a fortnight.
Hair has recently returned to Sydney after living for three years in England. He told the Australian media that it was "unsure but unlikely" he would umpire again, although James Sutherland, Cricket Australia's CEO, hinted that Hair might be offered a contract to umpire first-class cricket there.
"We had three good years living in England," Hair said, "but I am sure we will enjoy living here as well."
Hair is believed to be writing his memoirs which are expected to be published at Christmas.
