PCB has been made aware of the decision of Appeal Panel of the Cricket Discipline Commission of England & Wales Cricket Board

Lahore July 5, 2013PCB has been made aware of the decision of Appeal Panel of the Cricket Discipline Commission of England & Wales Cricket Board which upheld the life ban imposed on Mr. Danish Kaneria.

Mr Kaneria was duly represented in the proceedings through a legal counsel of his choice and no question with regard to jurisdiction, composition, procedure or fairness of the Appeal Panel was raised by Mr Kaneria's counsel.

Under ICC Anti-Corruption Code and PCB's Anti-Corruption Code
(Article-9) PCB is bound to recognize, respect and enforce the ban in Pakistan, meaning this ban is also being enforced by PCB in Pakistan.

Therefore, Mr. Danish Kaneria is suspended for life from any involvement in the playing, organization or administration of cricket in any form or manner under the jurisdiction of PCB.

PCB hopes Mr Kaneria will reflect on his past conduct and will now initiate efforts towards redemption and rehabilitation.
