The Ben Stokes vs Marlon Samuels saga continues as Shane Warne has now hit back at Marlon Samuels for his derogatory remarks against the English allrounder’s wife. Shane Warne in a series of tweets has called out Marlon Samuels asking the man from the Carribean to get help.
It all started when Ben Stokes whilst appearing on the Test Match Special podcast said that he’d never want the quarantine being imposed on his worst enemy for that matter, not even Marlon Samuels. He said this in relation to his 14-day quarantine in New Zealand which he had to undergo since he had to visit his family in New Zealand.
“I text my brother saying the same thing, and my brother asked: ‘You wouldn’t even do that to Marlon Samuels?’ I said ‘no, it’s that bad’ – that’s how tough it was,” said Ben Stokes on the Test Match Special Podcast
Shane Warne Asks Marlon Samuels to Get Help
This didn’t go down well with Marlon Samuels as he started targeting the all-rounder in a series of Instagram stories. Samuels accused Ben Stokes of being a racist and the fact that Stokes commented only because Samuels is of a different colour. There came a point when Samuels dragged Ben Stokes’ wife in the matter which didn’t really go down well with Shane Warne.
Shane Warne on Twitter said that it’s really a sad situation which is why in the hindsight, Marlon Samuels does need serious help. He opined that Marlon Samuels was an ordinary cricketer but doesn’t mean he’ll act like one ordinary person which is why he needs to get help.
“I’ve just been sent what Samuels has posted re @benstokes38 & I,” wrote Shane Warne.
“It’s a very sad situation as he obviously needs serious help – but has no friends at all & not even his ex-teammates like him. Just because you were an ordinary cricketer – no need to be an ordinary person. Get help son,” he added.
In the past way back in 2013, Shane Warne and Marlon Samuels were involved in an altercation during a BBL league match between Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades where Shane Warne called out Samuels for a robbing a runoff during Melbourne Stars batting as held David Hussey’s t-shirt so he doesn’t scramble through for the run.
