Salman Butt will face a hearing over charges of spot-fixing next month after his legal team failed to secure an adjournment.
Butt and two team-mates will face the charges next month, but the former Pakistan captain was trying to get the hearing delayed.
Butt's representatives held a telephone conversation with Michael Beloff QC, who will chair the independent tribunal which will take place in Doha between January 6 and 11, and made written submissions to him but Beloff denied the application for the hearing to be delayed.
Along with bowlers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir, Butt was charged earlier this year under the International Cricket Council's anti-corruption code in relation to alleged activity surrounding Pakistan's Test match against England at Lord's in August.
They were provisionally suspended earlier this year pending the outcome of the hearing.
All three men deny any wrongdoing.
