Marlon Samuels, who was one of the important players in West Indies’ T20 World Cup win in 2012 and 2016, has been charged by the ICC’s anti-corruption unit on four counts of breaching the Emirates Cricket Board’s anti-corruption code. Recently, in a media release on Wednesday, the ICC has informed that the charges relate to the T10 tournament organised by the ECB as well.

It is also noteworthy that, Samuels has been charged for the following breaches and he has only 14 days from 21 September to reply back to the charges that have been made as well.

Article 2.4.2 – Failing to disclose to the Designated Anti-Corruption Official, the receipt of any gift, payment, hospitality or other benefits that were made or given in circumstances that could bring the Participant or the sport of cricket into disrepute.

Article 2.4.3 – Failing to disclose to the Designated Anti-Corruption Official receipt of hospitality with a value of US $750 or more.

Article 2.4.6 – Failing to cooperate with the Designated Anti-Corruption Official’s investigation.

Article 2.4.7 – Obstructing or delaying the Designated Anti-Corruption Official’s investigation by concealing information that may have been relevant to the investigation.

Marlon Samuels announced his retirement last year

The veteran Marlon Samuels had announced his retirement from the game last year after having a successful cricketing career. Notably, he had played 71 Tests, 207 ODIs, and 67 T20Is since he had made his debut for West Indies way back in 2000, and amassed over 11,000 international runs and 17 centuries as well.

However, he had faced controversy before as well during his cricketing career. He even faced a two-year ban after being found guilty, way back in May 2008 as well, of “receiving money, or benefit or another reward that could bring him or the game of cricket into disrepute”.
