Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria has been suspended from playing cricket in his home country by the Pakistan Cricket Board while he appeals a life ban for his alleged involvement in a spot-fixing plot.
The 31-year-old was last month found guilty by the England and Wales Cricket Board of "cajoling and pressurising" former Essex team-mate Mervyn Westfield into accepting cash in return for trying to concede a set number of runs in an over during a Pro 40 match in 2009.
Kaneria, who denies all involvement in the plot, immediately appealed the ban and the PCB have said they will not consider him for selection until they know the outcome of that.
"The Integrity Committee of Pakistan Cricket Board deliberated upon the recent ban imposed by Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) of English and Wales Cricket Board consisting of independent adjudicators against Mr. Kaneria and its implementation in Pakistan," read a PCB statement.
"The committee discussed in detail the ICC and PCB Anti-Corruption codes under which Pakistan Cricket Board is bound to recognise, respect and enforce the ban in its respective jurisdiction.
"It was also brought to the knowledge of the committee that Mr Kaneria intends to appeal against the decision of the Cricket Discipline Commission.
"Keeping in view this aspect, and in the light of the decision by CDC of ECB dated 22nd June 2012, the facts of which are being considered in detail by the Integrity Committee, and till the matter is finally concluded by ECB's Appeal Panel, the Integrity Committee decided that Mr. Danish Kaneria will not be eligible to play any cricket match, or participate in any cricket event/activity in Pakistan."
Kaneria has not played for Pakistan since September 2010 because of the spot-fixing allegations.
