ICC calls for global lifeban on Kaneria, makes other approvals
"Following the recent decision of the ECB's Disciplinary Panel in the anti-corruption proceedings brought against Danish Kaneria and Mervyn Westfield, the ICC Board unanimously acknowledged and agreed that the ICC and every Full, Associate and Affiliate Member should recognise and respect the sanctions imposed by the ECB's Disciplinary Panel on those players," ICC said in a statement.
Kaneria was banned for life by ECB last week after being found guilty on two charges of corruption in the Mervyn Westfield spot-fixing scandal. The 31-year-old Pakistani leg-spinner has said he will appeal against the verdict.
Grappling with the problem of spot-fixing, the ICC also emphasised on the need to remain extra vigilant in the area of anti-corruption and also maintain high level of education.
"Following the recommendations made in the De Speville report as to the capability of the ICC's ACSU, Sir Ronnie told the ICC Board that the ACSU had increased its resources. He also repeated the desire for Governments to put in place criminal legislation to protect against deliberately under-performing for personal gain and noted that progress had been made in this area in Australia," the statement said.
ICC also said that both Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), who are yet to implement a domestic anti-corruption code, will have such a code in place by 15 August, 2012.
