MELBOURNE:

India batsman Yuvraj Singh will face a disciplinary hearing on Friday after being charged with showing dissent toward an umpiring decision during the first cricket Test against Australia.

Singh showed his displeasure at umpire Billy Bowden's decision to call him out for a duck, caught behind off a Stuart Clark ball, on the last ball before tea on the second day. Singh paused at the wicket for lengthy period before walking from the Melbourne Cricket Ground field.

Singh will face a hearing with match referee Mike Proctor after stumps on the third day, a decision is expected later on Friday night or Saturday morning. If found guilty, Singh could be fined his match fee.
