Banned Pakistani Spinner Danish Kaneria seeks help from Imran Khan
Banned Pakistani spinner Danish Kaneria allegedly sought help from Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and cricket administrators. He recently said that his life is not in “good shape”.
Kaneria was banned because he was found guilty of spot-fixing while playing for English club Essex, he in a statement said that over time, he has tried to approach many individuals in Pakistan and around the world to resolve his issues, only to receive no help whatsoever, even when the “issues of many (other) cricketers of Pakistan have been resolved.”
He said, “My life is not in good shape and I approached many individuals in Pakistan and around the world to resolve my issues. Yet, I have not received any help. Issues of many cricketers of Pakistan have been resolved though. I gave everything possible for Pakistan as a cricketer and I am very proud of it. And in the hour of need I am positive that the people of Pakistan will help.”
Further he added, “I need support from all legendary players of Pakistan including Honourable Prime Minister Imran Khan, cricket administrators of Pakistan and other countries to get me out the mess. Please come forward and help me out.”
He even admired pacer Shoaib Akthar for his confession regarding the treatment faced by Kaneria. Kaneria even said that whatever Akhtar has said was true absolutely and he is very thankful to him for taking such a brave stand. In fact, a video of Pakistani pacer Shoaib Akhtar, has even gone viral on social media in which he had said that other players refused to eat food with Kaneria just because he was a Hindu.
Kaneria added, “Today, I saw the TV interview of the legendary bowler Shoaib Akhtar. I personally thank him for telling the truth to the world. At the same time, I am thankful to all great players who supported me wholeheartedly as a cricketer. Also thankful to media, genuine cricket administrators, and citizens of Pakistan who supported me regardless of my religious affiliation.”
