London:

Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria, and young pacer Mervyn Westfield have been arrested by Essex police for alleged spot-fixing in Essex's Pro40 match against Durham last September.

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.
