CNC3 – 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.
