ECB upholds Danish Kaneria ban
Tuesday 02 July 2013
Former Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria's lifetime ban will remain after his appeal was dismissed by the England and Wales Cricket Board.
Kaneria was banned by an ECB disciplinary panel in June last year after he was found guilty of corruption while playing with Essex in 2009. The 32-year-old was convicted of "cajoling and pressurising" former team-mate Mervyn Westfield into accepting cash in return for trying to concede a set number of runs in an over during a Pro40 match.
Westfield, who was imprisoned for his part in the affair, has had his five-year playing ban varied and could return to club cricket on 1 April 1 next year – three years early.
