Profile

Danish Kaneria will end his career as the highest wicket-taking spinner for Pakistan - itself an achievement - but he will probably be remembered more as the cricketer who was banned for life by the ECB after being found guilty of corruption in a spot-fixing case. Kaneria took 276 international wickets and more than 1000 first-class ones, but the spot-fixing saga has blotted his CV irretrievably.

Timeline
    • November 29, 2000
      Tough debut
      • Makes Test debut in the second Test against England in Faisalabad. Takes 2 for 89 and goes wicketless in the second innings. Tough initiation into Test cricket on a lifeless pitch. He's only the second Hindu to play Tests for Pakistan, after his cousin Anil Dalpat.
    • August 29-31, 2001
      Wicket aplenty
      • Match haul of 12 for 94 against Bangladesh in the Asian Test Championship in Multan. Takes six wickets in each innings, his first match-winning performance.
    • May 20, 2003
      Success in the shorter version
      • Takes 3 for 31 in a one-day international against New Zealand in Dambulla, his best ODI bowling figures to date. Helps Pakistan snatch a low-scorer.
