Both Inzamam's charges will be considered during a hearing to be conducted by the ICC chief match referee Ranjan Madugalle. Madugalle has been appointed to chair the hearing because Mike Procter, the match referee at The Oval, was involved in the incidents that took place on Sunday afternoon and is likely to be asked to present evidence to the hearing.
Inzamam has been charged, as captain, with a breach of level 2.10 of the ICC code which relates to changing the condition of the ball in breach of Law 42.3 of the Laws of Cricket.
This charge was brought by Billy Doctrove and Darrell Hair, the on-field umpires, on Sunday. If Inzamam is found guilty of breaching this provision he faces a fine of between 50 and 100% of his match fee and/or a one-Test or two-ODI ban.
Inzamam has also been charged with a breach of C2 at level 3 of the code which relates to conduct that brings the player or the game into disrepute. This charge was brought by Doctrove and Hair, along with Peter Hartley and Trevor Jesty, the third and fourth umpires, following a meeting on Monday morning.
If Inzamam is found guilty, an appeal must be made within 24 hours and he would be allowed to continue playing until that has been heard.
