Former Pakistan legspinner Danish Kaneria on Tuesday once again claimed that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was discriminating against him because of his faith – a string he has already harped on but backtracked in 2019.
The PCB is “sleeping on my case because I am a proud Hindu”, he tweeted before adding that “[I] hope Imran Khan, the PM of Pakistan, will help.”
“Everyone else has been accepted so why not me?” he added.
Kaneria, who was banned from playing cricket in 2013 for his part in a spot-fixing scandal, questioned why the PCB was refusing his request for rehabilitation like other tainted cricketers, adding that if can’t play he would at least want to coach.
It is not the first time Kaneria has taken to Twitter to claim that he was being mistreated by the PCB due to his faith. He did the same in December 2019, although days later he had clarified that his accusation was not against his compatriots.
