Pakistan’s former leg-spinner Danish Kaneria has said that he will shortly reveal the name of those players who discriminated against him from the team for being a Hindu by religion. Pakistan’s fearsome pacer Shoaib Akhtar recently revealed that the Pakistan team and board discriminated Kaneria for being a Hindu. Akhtar even revealed that some Pakistan players didn’t even have their meals along with the leg spinner. Later, Kaneria echoed Akhtar’s claims.

Kaneria was one of the prolific spinners of his time and helped his team win a plethora of games at the international level. His most noteworthy contribution is when he helped Pakistan win a Test against England at their home.

Danish has played a total of 61 Test matches and has clinched 261 wickets in the format. He also played 18 ODI matches for the sub-continent side and snared 15 wickets.

Danish Kaneria To Make A Big Revelation Soon:

Kaneria has supported Akhtar’s claims and said that he will shortly reveal the names of the players that discriminated against him.

Answering a fan’s tweet, Kaneria said, His words are also as blunt as his bowling. It is a fact that I didn’t get any support from PCB. They don’t want to even talk to me. I feel that I am being punished for being a player from the minority community in Pakistan.” #AskDanish

Danish has also revealed that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) never supported him.

Earlier, pacer Akhtar made some shocking comments on Pakistan team and the national board.

“In my career, I fought with two-three (in the team) when they started talking on regionalism. Things like ‘who is from Karachi, Punjab or Peshawar’, that used to infuriate. So what if someone is a Hindu, he is doing well for the team,” said Akhtar.

He added, “They used to say ‘sir ye yaaha se khaana kaise le raha hain’ (how is he taking food from this place)?” 

This is not the first time when Pakistan is being blamed for treating players differently. The team has received criticism for its behaviour from all across the globe.

Shortly, the culprits behind this ill-treatment will be public and it will be another matter of shame for the sub-continent side.
