KARACHI:For the test series against South Africa, Pakistan cricket board refused clearance and is not allowing leg spinner Danish Kaneria to join the test squad in Dubai.
Kaneria, who has taken 261 wickets in 61 tests, was cleared in September of betting during an English county match last season.
reporters told that.“He has not been cleared and we have nothing more to say,” Zakir Khan, Pakistan’s director of international operations.
Kaneria was due to leave with a batch of four other players on Sunday to join the squad for the two tests starting from Nov. 12.
Kaneria’s reviews about the decision were “I don’t know what has happened,I just got a call from a board official saying I shouldn’t go to the airport.”
Pakistan cricket was hit by spot-fixing allegations during their tour of England this year. Three players – test captain Salman Butt and bowlers Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif – were provisionally suspended by the International Cricket Council.
Scotland Yard and the ICC anti-corruption unit are investigating the case.
