Ravindra Jadeja will appeal the 50 percent match fee and the level two misconduct charge that the International Cricket Council handed down to him.
The appeal is set to be heard on Friday, which is the same day that James Anderson's hearing concerning the same incident will be taking place.
Anderson was subject to a level three misconduct charge by the ICC over claims that at lunch on day two of the Trent Bridge test he pushed and abused Indian middle order batsman and spinner Jadeja.
If found guilty, Anderson could be faced with a maximum four match ban, which would take him out of the rest of the series with India. He would also be banned for the first two Tests in Sri Lanka, and see his hopes of becoming England's leading wicket taker severally hampered.
Amidst the claims, England captain Alastair Cook has stated that the accusations have been made in an attempt to unsettle the sing bowler during the five match series with India.
