Shahid Afridi: Danish Kaneria, the former Pakistani leg-spinner, has slammed his former teammate Shahid Afridi, accusing him of abuse during his time in the Pakistan team, and has asked the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to revoke his life ban issued in 2013 after he was found guilty of spot-fixing. Last year, Shoaib Akhtar revealed on Pakistani television that the Pakistani squad treated Kaneria unfairly because he was a Hindu. Kaneria told news agency IANS on Thursday (April 28) that Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi was against him at the time.

“Shoaib Akhtar was the first person to publicly discuss my situation.  He deserves credit for expressing it (how I was mistreated in the team because of being a Hindu). Several authorities, however, put pressure on him later. After that, he didn’t say anything else about it.”

“He was a liar, manipulator… because he’s a characterless person. However, my focus was only on cricket and I used to ignore all these tactics. Shahid Afridi was the only person who would go to other players and provoke them against me.”

If it hadn’t been for Afridi, the former cricketer believes he may have played a lot more than the 18 ODIs he did. The Karachi-born player also stated that he has never been a part of any spot-fixing schemes.

“Some false allegations were leveled against me (of spot-fixing). My name was joined with the person involved in the case. He was a friend of other Pakistani cricketers as well, including Afridi. But I don’t know why I was targeted. I just want to request the PCB to lift the ban so that I can do my work. There are several fixers who got out of the ban.”

The 41-year-old added

Kaneria played 61 Tests between 2000 and 2010, getting 261 wickets at an average of 34.79. He also played 18 One-Day Internationals for Pakistan, taking 15 wickets at 45.53. He is still Pakistan’s top wicket-taker in Test cricket, and fourth all-time behind Wasim Akram (414), Waqar Younis (373), and Imran Khan (362).
