England Cricket Board has found Danish Kaneria guilty of two acts of spot-fixing during a county match.
The England and Wales Cricket Board has found Pakistani legspinner Danish Kaneria guilty of two spot-fixing charges during an English county match. The ECB says English bowler Mervyn Westfield has pleaded guilty to one charge.
The ECB says it will announce sanctions against the two former Essex players later Friday.
Kaneria was accused in a British court in February of pressuring Westfield into spot-fixing during a match against Durham on September 5, 2009.
Westfield pleaded guilty and was jailed for four months. Kaneria has been suspended from international cricket by the Pakistan Cricket Board since 2010 soon after allegations of spot-fixing surfaced.
