Former Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria said that he has hired a legal team for an English cricket board disciplinary hearing over a spot-fixing case that sent his former Essex teammate to jail.

Mervyn Westfield was jailed for four months in February after admitting that he accepted money to under-perform during a Pro40 match between Essex and Durham in 2009. The 23-year-old seamer named Kaneria as the link between bookmakers and players.

“Kaneria has hired three lawyers, two from the UK and one from Pakistan to represent him before the ECB,” said a statement from the player’s lawyer Farogh Naseem.
