    LONDON: Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria lost his legal challenge to a life ban imposed by English cricket chiefs at London's High Court on Tuesday.


    Kaneria was barred by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) ... for encouraging a teammate to bowl badly on purpose as part of a spot-fixing scam.

    The ECB had charged Kaneria, then playing for Essex, with inducing Mervyn Westfield to deliberately concede runs in a Essex-Durham county match on September 5, 2009.

    ...

    Westfield revealed he'd bowled "deliberately badly" after agreeing to concede 12 runs in his first over for "financial reward", Hamblen told the court.

    "In the event he conceded 10 runs, including a wide, and received 6000," the judge added.

    "For this spot fixing, he was sentenced to four months' imprisonment in February 2012..."
