Darren Sammy, Marlon Samuels brought World Cup into disrepute – ICC


 Share This On:


Sammy-300x225CNC3 – The International Cricket Council has accused the West Indies players of bringing the recent World Twenty20 into disrepute following comments made by the captain, Darren Sammy, and the batsman Marlon Samuels in the aftermath of their victory against England in the final three weeks ago.

Sammy used the presentation ceremony to hit out at the West Indies Cricket Board for “disrespecting” the team – a reference to a pay dispute prior to the tournament – while Samuels sarcastically dedicated his award for man of the match to the Australian commentator Shane Warne and was fined 30% of his match fee for abusing the England all-rounder Ben Stokes.

In a press release sent out on Monday by the International Cricket Council, which congratulated the Indian board for its hosting of the tournament despite issues over ticketing and venues, the governing body chose not to name either player but did use a picture of Samuels on its official website.

The statement, which detailed outcomes from four days of meetings by the ICC board and various committees in Dubai, read: “The board considered the behaviour of some of the West Indies players in the immediate aftermath of the final, and unanimously agreed that certain comments and actions were inappropriate, disrespectful and brought the event into disrepute.

  1. What was supposed to be jubilation was tuned into glum ! Wrong timing. Sammy didn't have to spill his dirty laundry in front of the world. This is unlike the Sam we know. I wonder where the influence came from ?

  2. Check the icc board and what would a west indian would expect coming to them ? West Indian cricketers cannot do anything right if they don't get a but,west indies players dont have a back bone ,no one to support them ,this icc is a bunch of crocodile waiting for West indies cricketer to come and drink water to destroy them,I think that socall icc will only allowed Australia,New Zealand,England,and south Africa and India to play cricket,

  3. ICC = 12th man on the English cricket team. That group changed the test game when they could not win. There is more money to be made in other sports other than that controlled by this 12th man.

  4. The ICC is up to NO good!
    Keep your "Divide & Conquer" BS to yourselves.
