Samuels Receives Two-Year Ban
By Staff
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has banned West Indies batsman Marlon Samuels for two years after finding him guilty of breaking its rules designed to stop players betting on matches.

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) had first looked into charges that the cricketer had passed on team information to a bookmaker during a one-day series in India in January of last year. Although Samuels denied giving any information to bookies, the WICB said the 27-year-old Jamaican had ‘received money, benefit or other reward which could bring him or the game into disrepute’.

'We hope the case serves as a reminder to players and officials to remain vigilant,” said David Richardson, Acting Chief Executive for the ICC.

'It is never pleasant when a player is banned but the process in arriving at this point has been an extremely thorough one.'
