Former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria has once again had an application to appeal his life ban from cricket dismissed, the England and Wales Cricket Board has announced.

Kaneria was banned by an ECB disciplinary council in June 2012 after being was found guilty of corruption while playing with Essex during a Pro40 match in 2009.

The 33-year-old has repeatedly tried to overturn the punishment, but his latest appeal was "totally without merit", according to Rt Hon Sir Stanley Burnton, sitting in the Court of Appeal, Civil Division.

With Kaneria unable to have the decision reconsidered, the ECB said he has "exhausted all the legal options available to him to appeal a life ban".
