Former Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria was given a life ban from English cricket on Friday for his involvement in the Mervyn Westfield spot-fixing case, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said.

Westfield was given a five-year ban, although he will be able to play club cricket after three years of his suspension.

In a statement an ECB disciplinary panel said: "We regard Danish Kaneria as a grave danger to the game of cricket and we must take every appropriate step to protect our game from his corrupt activities.

However, Danish Kaneria has confirmed that he will appeal against the lifetime ban given by the ECB and also called the decision “very unfair”.
