Michael Vaughan is set to discover the outcome of his Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) hearing on Tuesday as the former England captain faces a possible ban from the game.
The hearing was held last month after Vaughan was accused of sending racist, sexist and homophobic tweets about Yorkshire player Azeem Rafiq.
Vaughan, who is currently a pundit for the BBC, apologised for his tweets and has since deleted his Twitter account.
The CDC hearing took place on the 16th of December and the verdict is expected to be announced on Tuesday.
The CDC has the power to impose sanctions on players and officials, ranging from a warning, to a fine or even a ban.
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has already taken action against Vaughan, suspending his involvement in the Hundred competition.
The 47-year-old was due to be a coach for the tournament, but was removed from his role pending the outcome of the CDC hearing.
Vaughan played 82 Test matches for England, scoring 5,719 runs and captaining the side to an Ashes victory in 2005.
Yorkshire batsman Rafiq, who has represented England at Under-19s level, has since been offered a professional contract with the club.
The ECB has said that it cannot comment on the hearing until the verdict is announced.
