Former West Indies all-rounder Marlon Samuels has been charged with breaching four counts of the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) anti-corruption code.

Alleged offenses include failing to disclose receipts of any gifts and hospitality worth $750, failing to cooperate with the anti-corruption investigation, and concealing information.

ICC in a statement issued on Wednesday said: The charges relate to the T10 tournament conducted by the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Samuels, regarded as the architect of West Indies’ twin T20 World Cup triumphs in 2012 and 2016, has been charged for the following breaches:

  • Article 2.4.2 – Failing to disclose to the Designated Anti-Corruption Official, the receipt of any gift, payment, hospitality or another benefit that was 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.

Samuels, 40, announced his retirement last year, has 14 days from September 21 to respond to the charges.
