Former West Indies all-rounder Marlon Samuels was on Wednesday charged under the

International Cricket Council’s anti-corruption code more than a decade after he served a ban for breaching regulations, reports AFP. Samuels, who played international cricket between 2000 and 2018, was charged by the ICC on behalf of the Emirates Cricket Board for breaching four elements of their T10 League anti-corruption code. Charges include failing to disclose

“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 disrepute”. Samuels is also charged with failing to cooperate with an anti-corruption official’s investigation. The

all-rounder played 71 Tests, 207 one-day internationals and 67 Twenty20 games for the West Indies. He scored 11,134 runs and picked up 152 wickets during his international career.
