Danish Kaneria requests PCB to allow him play domestic cricket

KARACHI: Former national cricketer Danish Kaneria has requested Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to remove his life ban and allow him to play in domestic cricket.
Danish Kaneria was banned for life under the jurisdiction of England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) after he was found guilty of spot-fixing while playing for English club Essex.
The cricketer recently has appealed to PCB to write to International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) Chairman to allow him to play in domestic cricket.
In the letter to PCB Chairman, Ehsan Mani, Kaneria’s legal team wrote that the cricketer has suffered unimaginable and incomprehensible hardships, both professionally and personally and his sole source of income has vastly been affected.
The cricketer posted the letter on his Twitter handle. “PCB has the authority to write to the Chairman ACU thereof making a request at the behest of our client to grant him permission to play and participate in domestic cricket, or any related activity thereof,” the letter read.

The letter further stated that Kaneria has “shown his willingness to undergo any and all educational, rehabilitative, or any other related programs.”
“In light of the above submissions, you are hereby requested to exercise the power given to you under the Code and address the Chairman ACU to grant our Client permission to participate in domestic cricket or activities related thereof as our Client is willing to undergo any and all programs as the same are willing and cooperate to the best of his abilities,” the letter concluded.
