PCB to summon Kaneria over spot-fixing allegation

Islamabad , Thu, 23 Feb 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Feb 23(ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has ordered leg- spinner Danish Kaneria to re-appear before its integrity committee and respond to spot-fixing allegations.


"Danish Kaneria will again be called to appear before the integrity committee to explain his position," the Dawn quoted a PCB statement, as saying.


Essex police had cleared Kaneria of charges of his alleged involvement in spot-fixing during a county match against Durham in 2009.


But the PCB's integrity committee has directed Kaneria to provide copies of tapes of his Essex police interview.


The move comes after a judge in London sentenced Essex bowler Mervyn Westfield to four months in prison for on-field corruption and accused Kaneria of pressuring county players to indulge in the match-fixing.


Kaneria has however, denied allegations and claimed that he had been cleared by British police, the England Cricket Board and the International Cricket Council.


Both cricket organizations denied his claims and added that Kaneria has never been granted a clearance certificate.


The PCB has axed Kaneria from the squad since Westfield's spot-fixing case came to light in 2010. (ANI)
