Former West Indies captain Samuels hit with six-year ban

Former West Indies captain Marlon Samuels has been banned for six years for breaching cricket’s anti-corruption code.

The punishment was handed down by the International Cricket Council after Samuels was found guilty of four offences while playing in the T10 League in Abu Dhabi.

The 42-year-old, who made the last of his 345 appearances across all formats for the Windies in 2018, “failed to disclose the receipt of any gift, payment, hospitality or other benefit that was made, as well as the receipt of hospitality worth $750 or more.”

In addition, he was found to have “failed to co-operate with the investigation, and obstructed the investigation by concealing information.”

Alex Marshall, who heads up the ICC HR and Integrity Unit, said: “Samuels played international cricket for close to two decades, during which he participated in numerous anti-corruption sessions and knew exactly what his obligations were under the Anti-Corruption Codes.

“Though he is retired now, Mr Samuels was a participant when the offences were committed. The ban of six years will act as a strong deterrent to any participant who intends to break the rules.”
