Islamabad - The Pakistan Cricket Board has suspended leg-spinner Danish Kaneria until the outcome of his appeal in England against his life ban is known.

Kaneria was banned by the England and Wales Cricket Board last month for pressuring former Essex team-mate Mervyn Westfield into spot-fixing in an English county one-day game in 2009.

The PCB said in a statement on Monday that it "is bound to recognise, respect and enforce the ban in its respective jurisdiction," according to the International Cricket Council's anti-corruption code.

The PCB says its integrity committee ruled that any final decision should wait until Kaneria's appeal.
