Marlon Samuels, the key member of West Indies’ twin T20 World Cup win in 2012 and 2016, has been charged by the ICC’s anti-corruption unit on four counts of breaching the Emirates Cricket Board’s anti-corruption code as well. However, in a media release on Wednesday, the ICC has shared that the charges relate to the T10 tournament organised by the ECB.

However, he was no stranger to controversy as well as he has faced many during his career. He even faced a two-year ban after being found guilty, way back in May 2008, of “receiving money, or benefit or other reward that could bring him or the game of cricket into disrepute” as well.
