Kaneria's ban goes global
Thursday 28 June 2012
International Cricket Council nations has agreed in principle to enforce on a worldwide basis Danish Kaneria's life ban for corruption.
The Pakistan leg-spinner was banned by the England and Wales Cricket Board after encouraging his former Essex team-mate Mervyn Westfield to engage in spot-fixing.
Westfield, jailed for four months in February for deliberately bowling badly in a CB40 game in 2009, was given a five-year domestic ban. At a board meeting in Kuala Lumpur the ICC has now said other countries "should recognise and respect the sanctions".
