Legspinner Danish Kaneria on Thursday explained why it is important that the lifetime ban on him from playing cricket be lifted.

Kaneria said that he has fallen on hard times, which is why he seeks the help of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) as well as the removal of ban.

It is pertinent to mention here that the spinner was banned by the England and Wales Cricket Board in 2012 for his involvement in a spot-fixing scandal.

Kaneria, who began a questions and answers session with fans on Twitter, was asked where the bowler sourced his income from.

To this, he replied: “I don’t have any source of income right now. That’s why I am requesting @TheRealPCB to help. Removal of the ban is very necessary for my survival. "

One fan asked his future plans regarding cricket, to which he once more urged the board to remove the "immoral" ban.
