Danish Kaneria found guilty of match-fixing

The ECB Disciplinary Panel announced that Danish Kaneria has been found guilty of two charges under the ECB’s regulations following a contested hearing which commenced in London on Monday June 18.

Mervyn Westfield was also charged with one offence under the ECB’s regulations to which he pleaded guilty.

The panel will now consider the appropriate sanction against both players and a decision is expected to be announced soon.

The ECB welcomed the decisions reached by their disciplinary panel and the sanctions imposed, with a statement reading:

“This sends a very clear message to everyone involved in the sport that corrupt activities will not be tolerated and those individuals who are alleged to have breached the ECB’s anti-corruption regulations will be fully investigated and where appropriate made subject to the full ECB disciplinary process.

“ECB will continue to support the need for strong deterrents to protect the integrity of the sport and is committed to continuing to work closely with the Professional Cricketers’ Association to educate players about the dangers posed by illegal gambling and the potentially significant adverse consequences to their cricket careers of involvement in any form of corrupt activity.”
