The money Danish Kaneria referred to is what the ECB wants to recover from him as fines and costs for the spot-fixing hearings and appeals held in London since 2012.
The leg-spinner who lives in a three bed spacious apartment in the posh Bath Island residential area near Clifton bridge. The apartment is shared by the families of Kaneria and his elder brother and their mother.
"My father passed away during this ordeal that started in 2010 when they first stopped me from playing for Pakistan and I was called back from the airport while going to Abu Dhabi for the South Africa series," Kaneria recalled.
Kaneria said his family had been a source of great strength for him even when mostly the cricket community remained aloof and the PCB ignored him apart from insisting in a few meetings that he confess to his guilt.
"But now I hope the PCB will help me our as will members of the cricket community," he added.
Asked whether he was in any position to pay the 250,000 pounds to the ECB if ordered to do so by the court, Kaneria said he was not even thinking about such a possibility right now.
"I am already devastated for the last three years and now this ... I came back to Pakistan after losing my appeals reconciled to the fact that cricket was over for me now….but my misfortunes don't seem to end," Kaneria who took a total of 261 test wickets said.
Asked if he had even considered the option of coming clean on the spot fixing episode as demanded by the ECB, Kaneria shot back: "Than why have I wasted my hard earned money, gone through such torture and given so much stress to my family. I have been only trying to prove my innocence all this time," the leg spinner said.
