Kaneria facing lifetime ban from ICC
International Cricket Council chief Haroon Lorgat will this week call for Danish Kaneria's lifetime ban for spot-fixing to be recognised across the cricket world.
An England and Wales Cricket Board Disciplinary Panel has found the former Pakistan leg-spinner guilty of "cajoling and pressurising" former Essex team-mate Mervyn Westfield into accepting cash in return for trying to concede a set number of runs in an over during a Pro 40 match in 2009.
In a damning verdict the ECB panel also described Kaneria, who has indicated his intention to appeal after maintaining his innocence, as a "grave danger" to the sport.
Despite the panel's ruling, however, it is unclear whether Kaneria's ban will be enforceable outside of the ECB's jurisdiction of England and Wales.
Press Association Sport understands the cricket boards of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are not presently obliged to fall in line with the ban as they are yet to sign an understanding among the ICC's full-member nations that domestic sanctions for match-fixing would be recognised within their borders.
Kaneria's hopes of playing back in his homeland of Pakistan, where he had been employed more recently, would seem to be at an end though, after the Pakistan Cricket Board were one of the first signatories to the understanding.
And Lorgat, speaking in Kuala Lumpur ahead of the ICC's annual general conference, said he would use the gathering to ask all boards to recognise such punishments to reinforce the governing body's "zero tolerance" stance on match fixing.
"It is opportune that the ICC board meets this week and I will ask the board to remind all members to put in place appropriate mechanisms to ensure that the sanctions imposed on both players in this case are appropriately recognised and respected outside of the ECB's domestic jurisdiction," he said.
A distraught Kaneria has since hit out at the panel's decision, which also labelled his evidence during the four-day hearing in London as "plainly lies".
"I'm very upset about this decision. For what reason they have convicted me I do not know," he told Sky Sports News. "I will definitely be doing an appeal. I'm not lying. I'm telling the truth. I've been telling the truth all the way."
