</td></tr> </tbody></table> <!-- E IIMA --> <!-- S SF --> West Indies batsman Marlon Samuels has been banned for two years after being found guilty of breaking rules designed to stop players betting on matches.
The International Cricket Council enforced a mandatory ban on the 27-year-old backdated from 9 May.
The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) said Samuels had "received money, benefit or other reward which could bring him or the game into disrepute".
Samuels denied giving out any information to a bookmaker. <!-- E SF -->
But the ICC's acting chief executive David Richardson said: "We hope the case serves as a reminder to players and officials to remain vigilant.
"It is never pleasant when a player is banned, but the process in arriving at this point has been an extremely thorough one."
The West Indies committee looked into charges that the Jamaican had passed on team information to a bookmaker during a one-day series in India in January 2007.

Well, nobody needs to be rocket scientist to know the outcome of Bd results. Bookmakers never had to ask.

Although I condem Sumuels' act, I think this will be a huge blow to West Indies. West Indian cricket is in the crossroads and they cant afford to lose a player like Samuels and cricket cant afford to lose another top team.
