Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Jeremain Brown

West Indies wicketkeeper batter Devon Thomas has been suspended by the world governing body, the International Cricket Council (ICC) and slapped with seven charges under its anti-corruption code including "contriving to fix" matches.

Thomas, who was named in the West Indies squad for the forthcoming three match ODI series against the UAE in Dubai, has 14 days to respond.

The charges against 33 year-old Thomas are with regard to his conduct while playing in three franchise-based tournaments: the Lanka Premier League (LPL), the Abu Dhabi T10 and the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

He  last played for West Indies in the day/night Adelaide test against Australia in December 2022, his only appearance in the format. Thomas has also turned out for West Indies in 21 ODIs and 12 T20s since his international debut in 2009.
