Dishearted Danish Kaneria leaves country, reaches India

KARACHI: Pakistani leg-spinner Danish Kaneria on Monday has silently left the country and reached India with his family.

According to sources, the Pakistani cricket star was banned by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for life due to his involvement in spot-fixing and that could be the possible reason he left Pakistan.

Media reports say that Kaneria has also written a letter to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, claiming that he is facing discrimination being a member of minority Hindu community.

However, there was no official word from Kaneria on his trip to India. According to media reports, Kaneria is seeking help from India cricket board to find him a place in the team.

In July 2013, PCB banned the player after he was found guilty of spot-fixing while playing for English club Essex.
