Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria will have his appeal against a life ban for corruption in English county cricket heard in Britain in early December, a source close to the former Test player told Reuters.
Kaneria, 31, was banned for life from playing in Britain after an England [ Images ] and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) disciplinary panel ruled last June that he had been involved in spot-fixing.
Tafazzul Rizvi, a legal advisor to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), said the board had been informed of the hearing.
"Basically under ECB rules it will be a fresh trial and hearing in which there will be a reappraisal of witnesses and Danish can produce fresh witnesses as well," he said.
The PCB has suspended Kaneria from domestic cricket pending his appeal hearing.
