Pakistan Board stops Kaneria joining test squad in Dubai

KARACHI, (Reuters) – Pakistan leg spinner Danish  Kaneria has been refused clearance from the country’s cricket  board to join the squad in Dubai for the test series against  South Africa. “He has not been cleared and we have nothing more to say,”  Zakir Khan, Pakistan’s director of international operations,  told reporters.

Kaneria was due to leave with a batch of four other players yesterday to join the squad for the two tests starting from Nov.  12.    “I don’t know what has happened,” Kaneria told reporters.
“I  just got a call from a board official saying I shouldn’t go to  the airport.”

Kaneria, who has taken 261 wickets in 61 tests, was cleared  in September of betting during an English county match last  season.      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.
