Kaneria anxious for former Essex teammate Westfield to be at appeal hearing

Karachi, Mon, 10 Dec 2012 ANI

Karachi, Dec. 10 (ANI): Banned Pakistani cricketer Danish Kaneria has said his lawyers will challenge the absence of witness Mervyn Westfield if he does not appear for an appeal hearing on Monday.

Kaneria said that his legal team had been told that his former Essex team mate Westfield would not attend the hearing in the British capital, reports the Daily Times.

"We are surprised at this development and will challenge his absence when the hearing proceedings begin. He has accused me of corrupting him and my legal team wants to question him again as his testimony played a big role in my ban," said Kaneria, who was banned for life by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) in June for corruption.

Kaneria will appeal against the ban this week after being branded a 'grave danger' to the game by the ECB who found him guilty of encouraging or attempting to encourage Westfield to under-perform in a match in 2009.

The Pakistan leg-spinner, who has been suspended by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) pending the outcome of the appeal hearing, said he wanted Westfield to appear before the five-man ECB panel. (ANI)
