Former West Indies batsman, Marlon Samuels has been charged by the International Cricket Council (ICC) anti corruption unit with four counts for allegedly breaching the Emirates Cricket Board’s Anti-corruption Code.
The charges are related to the Abu Dhabi T10 League 2019, when Samuels was part of the Karnataka Tuskers squad. He did not play a match that season.
According to an Espencricifo article last week, Samuels is being charged for “failing to disclose to the designated anti-corruption official, the receipt of any gift, payment, hospitality or other benefit that was made or given in circumstances that could bring the participant or the sport of cricket into dispute.”
Samuels also failed to disclose to the designated anti-corruption official receipt of hospitality of US$750 or more and failed to cooperate with the anti-corruption official’s investigation.
The reports also said the two-time Twenty20 World Cup winner has been charged with “obstructing or delaying the designated anti-corruption official’s investigation by concealing information that may have been relevant to the investigation.”
