PCB to meet 'whistleblower' Latif to discuss 'banned' Kaneria's spot-fixing case

Islamabad, Aug 30 : The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has reportedly decided to meet former captain Rashid Latif and discuss the spot-fixing case of banned leg-spinner Danish Kaneria.

According to the Daily Times, Latif is backing Kaneria, who was last year banned by England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for luring his Essex county teammate Mervyn Westfield to concede an agreed number of runs in a county match in 2009.

The report further said that Kaneria's first two appeals against the ban were both rejected earlier this year, although he had launched a fresh appeal in a London court.

The PCB move comes a week after Latif urged the board not to force Kaneria to plead guilty to spot-fixing until he has exhausted all legal options available to him, and the report added that the former skipper also offered to share some evidence with them, which could help in the Kaneria's case.

Kaneria is one of four Pakistan players serving bans in fixing, with former captain Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamir also serving five-year bans in a separate 2010 case, the report added.
