    accordance with an obligation entered into in the normal course and disclosed in advance to the Cricket Authority of the relevant Member Country

    Penalty

    Wasn't he under suspicion previously?

    Anyway, with his improved form, the increased amount of money in the game and, most importantly, the attention given to this issue, if he did it he would have to rate as the most stupid sportsman in history

    This is for that incident in India before the WC. Just took a while for the hearing to happen.

    What was his alleged reward for passing on the info, if it wasn't a monetary transaction?

    From what I've heard of the incident, it sounds like he was just oblivious to the illegality of passing this information on. Like he was tricked into doing so, except that the trick was only effective because he was an idiot.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Then why can't he defend it on the basis that he passed on the info, but got no reward for doing so?

    Apparently he was seen in Mumbai after the tour or something, some kind of vacation. Speculation though so far and apparently he's known the guy for like 5 years.

    Hmmm. ITSTL.

    Not being patronising in saying this, but I think you guys need him really. It looked recently like he was very much starting to fulfil some potential (or at least that's the impression I got from having seen him on a limited basis lately).

    Probably. Much better than who'd replace him.

    If found guilty of anything corrupt/to do with bookies, a player should face just one sentence - a life ban. Minimum and maximum both. No deviations. IF ICC is serious about getting rid of this plague.

    Yep. It's sad for the person, such as Samuels, who's been a victim of his own carelessness. But the game of cricket has far, far more to lose by being lenient on such people than they have to gain by said leniency.

    What a muppet, clearly his IQ is about the same as his number of FC centuries.
