Karachi: Pakistan's banned leg-spinner, Danish Kaneria will not give up his fight to get his name cleared and seek damages from the England and Wales cricket board which imposed the punishment on him for spot-fixing.

A court of appeal in the United Kingdom on Tuesday turned down an appeal by Kaneria against the life ban.

The judge in the Civil Division of the Court of Appeal, the Rt Hon Sir Stanley Burnton also ruled that Kaneria could not request this decision to be reconsidered and an ECB statement later said that "Kaneria has exhausted all the legal options available to him to appeal a life ban imposed for his role in spot-fixing while playing for Essex."
