In a week when he was banned from bowling after his action was ruled illegal, Marlon Samuels’ troubles appear to have grown with news that an internal West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) investigation into bribery allegations has found there is enough evidence to charge him with misconduct.
“He has been charged and the matter referred to the disciplinary committee,” WICB spokesman Tony Deyal told the caribbeancricket.com website. Deyal declined to go into any details of the investigation, which was undertaken by Jamaican attorney Derek Jones.
Deyal said the WICB’s code of ethics and disciplinary committee, chaired by Justice Adrian Saunders, will conduct a hearing as soon as possible. “We are working on getting copies of all the documents to the committee so they can read them and call a hearing.”
Phone conversations between Samuels and an alleged Indian bookie were taped by the Nagpur police on the eve of the one-day game between India and West Indies in Nagpur on January 21, 2007. Samuels denied any wrongdoing and the WICB backed him pending its own investigation. He has been advised of the latest developments.
