Danish Kaneria appeals PCB tribunal to review his case

Islamabad (Agencies): Banned leg-spinner Danish Kaneria has made a passionate appeal to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for reviewing his case in the three-member tribunal recently formed to probe the Pakistan Super League (PSL) corruption case.

PCB formed the three-member tribunal headed by a retired judge to investigate the spot-fixing case in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) involving opening batsmen Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif.

The tribunal will be headed by retired Justice Asghar Haider, who was also the legal advisor to the board in the past, and includes former PCB Chairman Tauqir Zia and former wicketkeeper Wasim Bari.Talking to APP, Kaneria requested the government and PCB’s Patron-in-Chief, Prime minister Nawaz Sharif to urge the board to review his case in front of the above mentioned tribunal. “I am a proud Pakistani and want to serve my country more. Help me in this regard,” he appealed.

It may be mentioned here that Kaneria was banned for life by England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) in June 2012 for his alleged involvement in foul practices of spot-fixing during the English county cricket season.
