Samuels fined

West Indies batsmen Marlon Samuels has been fined 30% match fees for using abusive language in the finals of the ICC World T20 2016 tournament at Eden Gardens, Kolkata yesterday night. The incident happened when Marlon Samuels used bad language to Ben Stokes in the last over. These two players have a history of rivalry before this match. West Indies won the match by 4 wickets to become the first team to win two T20 titles.

Samuels played a match winning knock of 85 not out and helped West Indies to achieve the target. Samuels did admit the bad behaviour he did and also accepted the deduction in the match fees by match referee Ranjan Madugalle. The charge against Marlon Samuels was done by on-field umpires, Kumar Dharmasena, Rod Tucker and third umpire Marais Erasmus, fourth umpire Bruce Oxenford.

It was a brilliant innings by Marlon Samuels who batted under pressure. West Indies was looking down and out when West Indies needed 19 runs off the last over but Carlos Braithwaite hit four sixes in a row to win the title. The charge was found as level 1 violation.

Marlon Samuels looked charged up after the win. He played a similar knock in the 2012 World T20 in Sri Lanka.  Marlon Samuels was found guilty in the article 2.1.4Which relates to “using language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during an International Match”, an ICC media release said.
