Spot-fixing: Danish Kaneria fined £100,000

Pakistan leg spinner, Danish Kaneria hasn’t only been suspended for life from all English county by ECB but has also been fined 100,000 pounds for his part in spot-fixing.

If Kaneria’s planned appeal against the life ban is not successful he not just faces an end to his cricket career but also has to pay a fine of 100,000 pounds to the ECB.

“The fine could be deducted from his funds held up by Essex county once he was questioned in the spot-fixing scandal in 2010,” one source close to the spinner informed PTI. Danish Kaneria, who played 61 Tests, enjoyed a yearly contract of 120,000 pounds plus other rewards including a car and house from the county for the yrs he represented them in county cricket.

Tafazzul Rizvi, the legal advisor of the PCB, who attended the ECB disciplinary hearing as an observer, also mentioned that a whopping fine had been charged on Danish Kaneria but stopped short of confirming the figure.

The source also claimed that the phone that was given to Kaneria by the county as part of his job deal was shown as proof in the hearing.
