An Interview with Danish Kaneria.

Danish Kaneria is a Pakistani leg spinner who is currently serving a life ban due to his involvement in spot fixing, he was involved, is it true or not is yet to be seen but there is no doubt he was/is a world class bowler.  He has continued the tradition of great Pakistani leg spin bowlers and possesses a very well disguised googly. In Test matches, Kaneria is fourth on the list of most Test wickets overall, only behind Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Imran Khan and will end his career as the highest wicket-taking spinner for Pakistan - itself an achievement. Here is a short but interesting interview that will tell you more about Danish Kaneria the person.
