The Court of Arbitration for Sport on Thursday kicked off an appeal hearing where Pakistan cricketeer Mohammad Asif hopes to overturn a ban imposed for spot-fixing.
Matthieu Reeb, head of the Swiss-based tribunal, said the hearing was due to end at 6:00 pm local time (1700 GMT), and that fast bowler Asif was there in person to fight his case.
On Friday, Pakistan captain Salman Butt is due to attend a CAS appeal hearing on his own ban.
The court is not expected to issue a ruling in their case this week.
