London court reserves judgement on Kaneria's appeal against the life ban
LONDON: The London commercial court has reserved its judgement on Danish Kaneria's appeal against the life ban imposed on him by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) in 2012, ARY News reported.
But Danish Kaneria, the banned Pakistan legspinner, will have to wait for a week to know whether he can revive his cricketing career again or will have to serve out the life ban imposed on him for his involvement in spot-fixing.
"Kaneria was represented by QC Tim Maloney at the hearing today but we will only know the decision next week," his brother Vicky said.
On June 2012, Danish Kaneria has been banned for life from any cricket under the jurisdiction of the ECB after being found guilty of corruption by a disciplinary panel in relation to the spot-fixing case involving Mervyn Westfield.
Westfield, a former Essex pace bowler, was also charged with bringing the game into disrepute to which he pleaded guilty and was given a five-year ban, although he will be allowed to play club cricket after three years.
Later, on April 2013, the former Pakistan legspinner had lost his appeal against a life ban from cricket imposed by the ECB.
