Former West Indies all-rounder Marlon Samuels has been charged with corruption

The ICC has accused West Indies star cricketer Marlon Samuels of corruption. The cricket governing body has accused the two T20 World Cup-winning stars of violating four sections of the Emirates Cricket Board's anti-corruption law.

The ICC said in a statement. These allegations are related to participation in the T-10 tournament. He was in Karnataka Taskers in 2019. Although no match was played.

The first of the four allegations is not disclosing to the anti-corruption official any gift, hospitality or other benefits received from anyone in a situation that could tarnish cricket.

The second is not to show hospitality receipts worth ০ 650 or more. The third is not to assist the anti-corruption officer in the investigation. And, last but not least, the anti-corruption official's work has been hampered by concealing information that may be relevant to the investigation.

The ICC has given Samuels 14 days to respond to the allegations. The World Cup-winning star retired from Samuels professional cricket last year.
