Karachi: Insisting that it has not isolated those players who have been given penalties for corruption and misconduct, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said it is closely monitoring the case of Test leg-spinner Danish Kaneria.
Kaneria, who is presently suspended from playing in Pakistan after being found guilty of encouraging spot fixing in English county cricket, has filed an appeal against his life ban from English cricket in London. He is still awaiting a date for the hearing.
"It is a wrong assumption that we are not keeping track of those of our players who have been given penalties for corruption or misconduct and have isolated them. We are following the Kaneria case and waiting to see when his appeal is held," a board official told PTI when asked about the criticism aimed at the board for allegedly abandoning Kaneria and other players convicted of spot fixing.
