West Indies batsman Devon Thomas has been provisionally banned for match-fixing, the ICC announced on Tuesday.
The 33-year-old, who has represented his country in all three formats, has been charged with breaching rules by three governing bodies.
“The International Cricket Council (ICC), on behalf of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) and the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), has charged West Indies player Devon Thomas with seven counts under their anti-corruption codes and he has been provisionally suspended with immediate effect,” the ICC said.
“Mr Thomas has 14 days from 23 May 2023 to respond to the charges,” it added.
Thomas, has been named in the West Indies’ squad for next month’s ODI series with the UAE.
“CWI (Cricket West Indies) is not directly involved in the process but remains firm in denouncing corruption in cricket, and fully supports the ICC ACU in its efforts to uphold the integrity of the sport,” the body said.
“In collaboration with ICC and the West Indies Players’ Association (WIPA), CWI remains committed to sensitising and educating our players and officials on anti-corruption in sports,” it added.
