Cape Town - Former Proteas cricketer Johan Botha will appeal the ban set on him by Cricket Australia (CA) for ball tampering.

Botha, who captains South Australia, received a one-match ban for breaching CA's code of behaviour.

The 31-year-old was found guilty for "repeated inappropriate conduct relating to the condition of the match ball" during his team's drawn match with New South Wales in Adelaide earlier this week.

CA on Friday confirmed that Botha has lodged an appeal against the one-match suspension imposed on him under the CA Code of Behaviour. 

The appeal will be held in Adelaide on Monday.

CA Code of Behaviour Commissioner, Anthony Crocker, will hear the appeal, with CA to issue the results of the appeal following the adjudication.
