Kaneria and Westfield found guilty of spot-fixing by ECB

The ECB says English bowler Mervyn Westfield has pleaded guilty to one charge.

The board will announce sanctions against the two former Essex players later Friday.

Kaneria was accused in a British court in February of pressuring Westfield into spot-fixing during a match against Durham on Sept. 5, 2009.

Westfield pleaded guilty and was jailed for four months.

Kaneria was suspended from international cricket by the Pakistan Cricket Board since 2010 soon after allegations of spot-fixing surfaced.
