The International Cricket Council has ordered an investigation into allegations that the West Indies batsman Marlon Samuels was in contact with a bookmaker during the tour of India in January.
The ICC's anti-corruption and security unit reported Samuels and ordered the West Indies Cricket Board to delve further into the matter. It is alleged that Samuels has breached the ICC Code of Conduct regulations for receiving any money, benefit or other reward which could bring him or the game of cricket into disrepute.
The WICB report will be handed to the ICC by 31 January, 2008.
