Danish Kaneria, Pakistan ‘s former leg-spinner, has appealed to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to lift his life ban and has requested permission to play domestic cricket.
He added in the appeal that he had issued his public apology and financially, emotionally, and mentally suffered. He was seeking permission to play again in the domestic cricket for Pakistan.
“Through my legal team, I appealed to the Pakistan Cricket Board to remove my life ban. As per ICC code, I have asked PCB to plead my case, at least I am allowed to play domestic (sic),” he said along with the letter addressed to PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani.
In addition, the letter stated the willingness of the 39-year-old to “undergo any and all associated educational, rehabilitative, or other services.”
Danish Kaneria has been in the spotlight for some time now, whether it is his own charges against PCB not to help him in the aftermath of the spot-fixing scandal or a tussle with former teammates Inzamam-ul-Haq and Faisal Iqbal in the past over a sledging incident.
After being found guilty of corruption by a disciplinary panel in relation to a spot-fixing case, Kaneria, who has played 61 Tests for Pakistan claiming 261 wickets, was banned for life from all crickets under the jurisdiction of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).
