Cape Town - The appeal hearing of Proteas captain Faf du Plessis against the International Cricket Council's (ICC) charge of ball tampering has concluded without a verdict being released.

Du Plessis was charged after the second Test against Australia in Hobart last month. 

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

He was fined 100% of his match fee but quickly decided to appeal the decision with the backing of Cricket South Africa. 

It still remains unclear as to when the ICC will release their final decision regarding his appeal.
