Islamabad: A court has asked Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria to seek a transcript of the Essex police inquiry that cleared him of criminal charges last year.

Kaneria's lawyer Farogh Naseem said on Tuesday that the Sindh High Court also asked Kaneria to take guidance from a British lawyer in getting the transcript, and to submit it to the Pakistan Cricket Board's integrity committee.

Kaneria filed a petition at the SHC for being ignored by the PCB for national team selection for the last eight months.

Essex police cleared Kaneria of criminal charges in Sept. 2010 over allegations that he was involved in spot-fixing during a county match against Durham in 2009.

The court has set Aug. 18 as the next date of hearing.
