The former West Indies cricketer has been given a time period of fourteen days, starting from September 21 to respond to the four charges. The ICC also said that it will not make any further comment in respect of these charges at this stage.

Samuels represented West Indies from 2000 to 2018, playing 71 Test matches, 207 ODIs and 67 T20Is. He was also the player of the match in the finals of the 2012 and 2016 men's T20 World Cup triumphs of West Indies.
