Samuels to be probed over alleged bookie links

West Indies batsman Marlon Samuels will face an investigation by the national board over alleged links with a bookmaker during a one-day tour of India in January.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) said in a statement on Wednesday that investigation by its anti-corruption officials had found sufficient ground to ask the West Indies board to probe the issue further and report back by the end of January.

Samuels (26) was allowed to play in the March-April World Cup in the Caribbean. The investigation followed an Indian police report that the Jamaican player allegedly passed on confidential team information to a bookmaker on the eve of the first one-dayer in Nagpur on January 21.—Reuters
