Ex-Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria said “there are several fixers who got out” of their bans.
The 41-year-old is currently serving a life ban given to him by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for his involvement in a spot-fixing scandal in 2009.
He has called for this ban to be lifted so that he “can live peacefully and do my work with respect”.
“There are several fixers who got out of the ban. I don’t know why I am not able to get that treatment. I have played for my country and I should be given a chance like others as well,” he was quoted as saying by IANS according to A-Sports.
“Now I am not even playing any international cricket. I am not asking the PCB for any job, but please lift this ban so that I can live peacefully and do my work with respect.”
Kaneria represented Pakistan in 61 Tests and took 261 wickets at an average of 34.79.
He also featured in 18 ODIs and picked up 15 wickets at an average of 45.53.
