Cape Town - The International Cricket Council (ICC) has set a date for Faf du Plessis' appeal after he was found guilty of ball tampering in the second Test against Australia in Hobart last month. 

In one of the biggest stories of the year, Du Plessis was seen on camera rubbing his finger on a mint on his mouth and then shining the ball. 

What would soon be referred to as 'Mintgate' caused chaos in Australian media, and Du Plessis was later charged, found guilty and fined 100% of his match fee for the second Test. 

But the Proteas stand-in captain appealed the decision and the ICC on Tuesday confirmed the hearing date for the appeal will be Monday, December 19.

Michael Beloff QC has been appointed Judicial Commissioner to hear the appeal. 

Legal counsel for both parties will attend in Dubai, whilst Du Plessis will join via telephone.
