Kaneria, Westfield likely to be suspended from Essex during match-fixing probe
London: Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria and his Essex teammate fast bowler Mervyn Westfield are likely to remain suspended from their county team until the police investigates their alleged involvement in match fixing.
Kaneria and Westfield have both received letters from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) informing them that their registrations will be suspended while the investigation by Essex Police continues, The Telegraph reports.
Both cricketers were arrested last month and interviewed at Brentwood police station about alleged irregularities during a Pro-40 League game against Durham last September.
However, neither of them have been charged and are out on bail until September 15.
Neither the ECB nor the Essex team management has taken any disciplinary action against the players, but if their registrations stand cancelled, it would prevent both Kaneria and Westfield from playing in any international tournament.
