West Indies batsman Devon Thomas, has been provisionally suspended by the International Cricket Council, ICC.

Thomas was charged with seven ICC anti-corruption code breaches including contriving to fix matches.

Thomas, who was named in the West Indies squad for the forthcoming three-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.

These are the Lanka Premier League, LPL, the Abu Dhabi T10 and the Caribbean Premier League, CPL.

In a media statement on Tuesday, the ICC said Thomas had breached the anti-corruption codes at all three tournaments.

The ICC says their anti-corruption unit had been authorised by all three boards in question – Sri Lanka Cricket, Emirates Cricket Board and Cricket West Indies – to conduct the investigation on their behalf.
