London, May 15 (ANI): Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria, and young pacer Mervyn Westfield were arrested by Essex police for alleged match fixing.

The Police accused the duo for being allegedly involved in fixing a match of Essex's Pro40 against Durham held September 2009.

Both the Essex cricketers were questioned at Brentwood police station on Friday before being released on bail until September 15, pending further inquiries, according to a report in the Daily Telegraph.

Both the players are free to play cricket for their club side or for the country as neither of them has yet been charged with any offence.

Although Kaneria's performance in the match against Durham is not under scrutiny, he is alleged to have introduced Westfield, whose performance against Durham is under the microscope, to an illegal bookmaker. (ANI)
