Pakistani legspinner Danish Kaneria says he'll appeal the lifetime ban handed down to him by the England and Wales Cricket Board for his role in the Mervyn Westfield spot-fixing scandal.
Westfield was given a five-year ban, although he will be able to play club cricket in the final two years of his suspension.
In a statement, the board's disciplinary panel said it regards Danish Kaneria as a grave danger to the game of cricket.
Westfield was jailed for four months in February after admitting he accepted money to underperform during a Pro40 match between Essex and Durham in 2009.
The now 24-year-old Westfield named Kaneria, arrested with him in 2010 but released without charge, as the link between bookmakers and players.
The 31-year-old Kaneria has not played for Pakistan since making the last of his 61 Test appearances against England in August 2010, the same tour that had the infamous spot-fixing episode in the Lord's Test, which led to then-captain Salman Butt and bowlers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer being jailed on corruption charges.
