Kaneria files petition against PCB for sidelining him
Karachi: Pakistani leg-spinner Danish Kaneria has filed a petition in the Sindh High Court against the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), accusing it of sidelining him.
The petitioner’s lawyer Dr. Mohammad Farough Naseem, accompanied by Kaneria himself, filed the constitutional petition in the SHC on Saturday.
Kaneria has made a plea that the PCB was persistently ignoring him despite the fact that he had been acquitted of spot fixing charges.
He also stated that he was quite fit and wanted to use his potential for the national cricket team, but he was not being given the chance.
The SHC will take up this petition for hearing on Monday, a newspaper reports.
Keen to revive his career, Kaneria had an email from Essex sent to the PCB in May, in which the club had thanked him for his services and explained the reasons why he was not being offered another contract.
But the board rejected it, saying that ‘clearance’ letter sent by Kaneria had failed to satisfy the PCB’s Integrity Committee, and that it wanted something more concrete.
“The supporting email he has sent was more than six months old and is already on the records of PCB. After taking legal opinion and after confirming with the ECB, PCB considers that [the] said document fails to satisfy the requirements by PCB,” PCB spokesman Nadeem Sarwar said in May.
