Appeal Panel ruling on Kaneria & Westfield sanctions

An Appeal Panel of the Cricket Discipline Commission today upheld the life ban imposed on Mr Danish Kaneria by a disciplinary panel in June 2012.

At a hearing in April 2013, the Appeal Panel had found that he had been guilty of two charges under the ECB's regulations. The panel varied the sanction imposed on Mr Mervyn Westfield.

He has been banned from all forms of cricket for five years from February 17th 2012, but will be permitted to participate in club cricket after April 1st 2014 provided that he has co-operated fully with the Professional Cricketers' Association's stringent anti-corruption education programme.
