Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria, who is as of now confronting a real life-ban from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for his job in the spot-fixing incident in 2012 while representing Essex, asserted that he would appeal against his boycott if India’s previous amazing all-rounder and current Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly turned into the International Cricket Council (ICC) president.
The 39-year-old was confident that the ICC would support him if Saurav Ganguly assumes control over the reins of the game’s overseeing body.
“Yes I will appeal (to Ganguly) and I’m sure ICC will help me out in every way possible,” said Danish Kaneria during an interview to India TV.
“I know him well, I played against him a number of times and worked with him as an administrator and in television. I feel that he has got the credibility, the leadership skills, and is someone that can really take the game forward and I think that, more than anything, that is needed right now at an ICC level,” he further added.
ICC’s elections are scheduled to be held in July this year and current chairperson Shashank Manohar has just explained that he isn’t looking for a tenure extension.
Danish Kaneria represented Pakistan in 61 Tests and 18 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) while taking 261 wickets and 15 wickets in each format respectively. He was the second player from the Hindu community to represent Pakistan team after his maternal uncle Anil Dalpat.
