Dubai, Oct 18 (IANS) Former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria has admitted to having a role in a spot-fixing scandal in England after denying the same for the last six years.

In an interview with Al Jazeera's Investigative Unit, Kaneria, who is Pakistan's most successful Test spinner, has said: "My name is Danish Kaneria and I admit that I was guilty of the two charges brought against me by the England and Wales Cricket Board in 2012."

"I have become strong enough to make this decision because you cannot live a life with lies."

Kaneria was banned from all cricketing activities in 2012.

The 37-year old was banned after the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) investigated claims of spot-fixing during a county championship match between Durham and Essex in 2009.

Kaneria has played 61 Test matches and taken 276 international wickets.
