ECB seek Pakistan’s help in recovering $390,000 from Kaneria. KARACHI: English cricket authorities Wednesday asked a court in Pakistan to help them recover almost £ 250,000 ($ 390,000) in fines and costs leveled against
prohibited leg spinner Danish Kaneria to the fixing point. A disciplinary panel of the Board for England and Wales Cricket (ECB) banned Kaneria in June 2012 after being found guilty of corruption while playing for Essex County
on a limited-overs match in 2009. The panel fined £ 100,000 in Kaneria. He lost his second and final appeal against the penalty in August 2014.

Naveed Khawaja, a lawyer for the ECB, said the petition in the Sindh High Court in Karachi requires Kaneria pay the fine and additional costs incurred in the course of the case.
“I filed a petition on behalf of the ECB in which we have demanded a total cost of £ 249,000 was recovered from Kaneria,” Naveed said. Naveed said a warning is issued for Kaneria on Saturday and in the case of former leg-spinner does not pay the ECB had asked the court to require the former player of selling your property. Kaneria, who said last year that it would consider whether to appeal to a European court or the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Switzerland, said he had not yet received formal notification of the action.

“I have come to know about this through the media and if I get any warning I will consult my lawyers,” he said. Under the rules of the International Cricket Council, banning a player by any member country is applicable worldwide, although Kaneria took part in a private cricket T20 league organized in the US last year. Kaneria’s most successful spinner with 261 Test wickets in Pakistan 61 games. It is also only the second time-Hindu to play for Pakistan at the highest level – the first was his cousin Anil Dalpat wicketkeeping – and it was something of a poster
child for the minorities in the country until its ban.
