London: Former Pakistan international Danish Kaneria has lost his final legal challenge in an English court against a life ban imposed by the England and Wales Cricket Board for spot-fixing while playing for county side Essex, it was announced on Tuesday.

Judge Stanley Burton, sitting in England's Court of Appeal, said an application by Kaneria to appeal against a life ban imposed by the ECB in June 2012, was "totally without merit". (Kaneria Banned for Life)

Burton also decided Kaneria could not request the decision to be reconsidered at an oral hearing.
