The BCCI-appointed Commissioner, Sudhir Nanavati, on Tuesday submitted a 14-page report on the slapping row involving Harbhajan Singh and his India teammate S Sreesanth to the BCCI which will decide the fate of the temperamental spinner in the next few days.

BCCI President Sharad Pawar will decide on Wednesday the date of the Disciplinary Committee meeting which will go through Nanavati's report and decide the quantum of punishment for the player who has already been banned from the ongoing IPL.

"The 15 days' deadline given to Mr Nanavati to submit his report is over and he has given the report. It will now be given to the Disciplinary Committee. They will take a decision," BCCI's Chief Administrative Officer Ratnakar Shetty said after accepting the sealed envelope containing the report from Nanavati at the Board office.

"We may decide tomorrow when the committee is to meet as Mr Pawar is in town," he added.

Pawar heads the committee which has President-elect Shashank Manohar and Vice-President Chirayu Amin as the two other members.

Shetty, however, refused to comment on the possible action that can be taken against Harbhajan by the three-member Disciplinary Committee based on the Nanavati probe report.

"It's not proper for me to comment on it. It's up to the Disciplinary Committee to decide (on the issue)," he said.

Nanavati arrived from Ahmedabad to hand over the 14-page report to Shetty and said that his task was over and it was up to the Disciplinary Committee to act.
