PCB to conduct an internal investigation against cricketers played with Kaneria
KARACHI: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will conduct an internal investigation after a few national players participated in exhibition T20 matches in the United States of America alongside banned legspinner Danish Kaneria, ARY News has learnt.
The investigation is aimed at finding how the players participated in the matches, which are not organised by the USACA, without a No Objection Certificate (NoC) from the board and played the game with a banned player.
Danish Kaneria has violated the life ban imposed on him by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) by playing a Friendship T20 match in United States on (February 14) Monday.
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.
Kaneria, however, has been participating in exhibition T20 leagues in the United States and played a match with Wahab Riaz and Nasir Jamshed last week in Houston, Texas. Fawad Alam, Abdul Razzaq and Shahzaib Hasan are also under investigation.
