Pakistan Test leg-spinner Danish Kaneria is seeking help from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) regarding his appeal hearing in London, which has been delayed since December.
Kaneria is presently in London waiting for a fresh date for the hearing on an appeal against the life ban imposed on him last year by a disciplinary panel of the England and Wales Cricket Board from playing in England because of his links with bookmakers, reports the Daily Times.
The panel imposed the life ban on Kaneria based on a confessional statement made by Kaneria''s Essex teammate Mervyn Westfield who claimed that he was introduced to an Indian bookmaker by the leg-spinner who induced him into corruption during county matches in 2009. But after December 10 was set by an appeal panel of the ECB to hear Kaneria''s appeal petition, Westfield has, for inexplicable reasons, avoided attending the hearing.
According to a source, Kaneria had contacted the PCB and informed them about the situation. Kaneria asked the PCB to help him out by speaking to the ECB and pressing them to make Westfield available for the appeal hearing, the source added.
