London:

Darrell Hair is a man who usually delivers the verdict on the field. But for the Australian umpire, it's a London court's judgement that will now hold the key to his future.

Hair, who is suing his employers, the ICC, for racial discrimination, will be joined in the witness box by a host of other illustrious names from the world of cricket, including Malcolm Speed, Dave Richardson, David Morgan and Billy Doctrove.

The 55-year-old umpire, whose 15-year-long career has been marred by last year's Oval Test controversy, hasn't officiated in a Test or One-Day International since he accused Pakistan of ball-tampering last August.

The proceedings, in fact, could last for as long as two weeks in the Central Office of London Tribunals.
