West Indies all-rounder Marlon Samuels has been fined 30 per cent of his match fee for using offensive language directed at Ben Stokes during the World Twenty20 final against England at the Eden Gardens on Sunday.

According to an ICC media release, Samuels was found to have breached Article 2.1.4 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “using language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during an International Match.

The incident happened in the final over of West Indies’ run-chase when Stokes was the bowler.

Samuels admitted the level 1 offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Ranjan Madugalle of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.
