Marlon Samuels has been charged by the ICC with breaching the Emirates Cricket Board’s anti-corruption code

Former West Indies international Marlon Samuels has been charged with four counts of breaching the Emirates Cricket Board’s anti-corruption code.

The charges were laid by world governing body, the International Cricket Council, on behalf of the regional authority which relate to Samuels’ participation in the Abu Dhabi-based T10 League.

Samuels played 71 Tests and 274 limited-overs internationals for the West Indies, including starring roles with the bat in their T20 World Cup final wins in 2012 and 2016, the latter against England.

The 40-year-old has been charged with failing to disclose the receipt of a payment, gift or other benefit « that could bring the participant or sport of cricket into disrepute » as well as failing to disclose hospitality worth more than $750 (£550).

The remaining charges cover failure to co-operate and obstruction or delay of the subsequent investigation.

Samuels was given 14 days to respond.

Cricket West Indies acknowledged the news, adding « While CWI has yet to receive detailed information relating to this ICC investigation, CWI remains firm in denouncing any such activities within the sport, and fully supports the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit in their efforts to rid the sport of all corruption.

« While this ongoing investigation continues, CWI will not make any further comment in respect of these charges. »
