It is not possible to talk about the T20 format and talk about the West Indies team and its players. A player of the West Indies team, which won the T20 World Cup twice in 2012 and 2016, is accused of corruption. The West Indies team won both these World Cup titles on the basis of this player. He was adjudged Man of the Match in both the World Cup finals. But now the same player has been found guilty of violating the anti-corruption code. This player is none other than Marilyn Samuels. He was charged by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in September 2021, but exercised his right to a hearing.

Made serious allegations

An independent anti-corruption committee was set up to investigate the matter and found Samuels guilty of four offenses under the Emirates Cricket Board’s (ECB) anti-corruption code. The charges relate to the 2019 season of the Abu Dhabi T10 and the committee will decide on sanction after hearing arguments from each side in the case. Samuels was part of the Karnataka Tuskers squad in the tournament but did not play a single game. However, he has violated some serious anti-corruption codes and has faced several charges.

Proceedings were taken under these sections.

Samuels is charged under Article 2.4.2, Article 2.4.3, Article 2.4.6 and Article 2.4.7. This is not the first time that Marilyn Samuels has been embroiled in such a controversy. In May 2008, he was banned for two years for ‘receiving money, benefits or other rewards likely to bring him or the game of cricket into disrepute’.
