Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria has failed in his appeal against a life ban imposed by the ECB for corruption.

 

Kaneria,  was banned by a disciplinary panel in June 2012 for spot-fixing while playing for Essex.

 

He was found guilty of "cajoling and pressurising" team-mate Mervyn Westfield into accepting cash to concede a number of runs in a Pro40 match in 2009.

 

He was also banned from professional cricket for five years, but the ECB appeal panel ruling stated that he can return to club cricket next April - three years before his ban is complete.
