KARACHI: Barrister Farogh Naseem will represent the banned Pakistani leg spinner Danish Prabha Shankar Kaneria in ECB’s petition seeking recovery of Rs39million, the Sindh High Court (SHC) was told on Tuesday.
Naseem on Tuesday filed power / vakalatnama through his aide Abida Bukhari to represent Kaneria. The court directed decree holder to supply complete set of copies of the execution application. The hearing was adjourned till 8th September.
Earlier on 29th July, England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) had approached SHC through the lawyer Khawaja Naveed, seeking the court’s help for recovering almost Rs 39 million from Kaneria as he was banned and fined by ECB in 2012.
The ECB disciplinary committee banned Kaneria for life in 2012 to take part in cricket all over the world after founding him guilty of spot fixing. A committee found him guilty of corruption in a match in which he was representing English county, Essex, in 2009.
Kaneria was asked to pay the fine amount £ 10 million as well as additional cost incurred over the case which totally becomes £ 249,000. Banned leg spinner lost his last appeal against life ban imposed by ECB from United Kingdom’s commercial court in 2014.
