Karachi: The Pakistan Cricket Board has rubbished claims by banned Test leg-spinner Danish Kaneria that he was discriminated against by the board because he is a Hindu.
The PCB’s media director Amjad Hussain Bhatti reminded Kaneria that he had played 61 Tests for Pakistan. “If he was discriminated against at any time because of his religion he would not have played even one match for Pakistan,” a visibly upset Bhatti said.
“We strongly condemn the anti PCB statement of Kaneria,” he added. Kaneria is in India days with his family to perform religious rituals but his silence on when he intends to return home, has led to speculations he might seek help in India for his case.
