Kaneria found guilty by ECB
Danish Kaneria has been found guilty of "cajoling and pressurising'' Essex team-mate Mervyn Westfield to become involved in spot-fixing.
The England and Wales Cricket Board disciplinary panel found the Pakistani guilty on two charges, one of inducing and encouraging Westfield not to perform on his merits during a Pro40 match for Essex against Durham in 2009, and one of bringing the game into disrepute.
Westfield pleaded guilty to a charge of receiving a reward which could bring him or the game of cricket into disrepute.
The former Essex duo are expected to be sanctioned by the ECB later on Friday.
Westfield was jailed for four months earlier this year after pleading guilty to spot-fixing at the Old Bailey in January.
A statement from the ECB read: "The ECB disciplinary panel today announced that Danish Kaneria has been found guilty of two charges under the ECB's regulations following a contested hearing which commenced in London on Monday, June 18.
"Mervyn Westfield was also charged with one offence under the ECB's regulations to which he pleaded guilty.
"The panel will now consider the appropriate sanction against both players and a decision is expected to be announced later today.''
