KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) on Tuesday adjourned the hearing of England & Wales Cricket Board’s petition seeking recovery of Rs39million from the banned Pakistani leg spinner Danish Prabha Shankar Kaneria.

Farogh Naseem on Tuesday appeared on Kaneria’s behalf who sought some time as record was not available with him. The court adjourned the hearing till the second week of October.

Earlier on 29th July, England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) had approached SHC through their lawyer, Khawaja Naveed, seeking the court’s help for recovering almost Rs 39 million from Kaneria as he was banned and fined by ECB in 2012.

The ECB disciplinary committee banned Kaneria for life in 2012 from taking part in cricket after founding him guilty of spot fixing. A committee found him guilty of corruption in a match in which he was representing English county, Essex, in 2009.

Kaneria was asked to pay the fine amount as well as additional cost incurred over the case which totally becomes £ 249,000.

Banned leg spinner lost his last appeal against life ban imposed by ECB from United Kingdom’s commercial court in 2014.
