Former West Indies allrounder Marlon Samuels has renewed his rivalry with Ben Stokes by posting a couple of expletive-laden messages on his Instagram story. Marlon Samuels slammed the England star and also targeted Australia great Shane Warne as he made it clear he was not all pleased with Ben Stokes’ recent joke about him.
Ben Stokes recently spoke of the demands of quarantining and joked that he wouldn’t wish the process on his “worst enemy” Marlon Samuels. The Rajasthan Royals star had to remain in quarantined in hotel rooms in Auckland and Dubai in recent months as part of the terms of travelling during the Covid-19 pandemic.
And he recently opened up on the experience, making it clear that he it was a tough one for him. While revealing about his tough experience, the England superstar jokingly said he would not wish the process on Marlon Samuels too.
“You get off the plane, get your bag, walk out and get told what hotel to go to,” Stokes recently told the TMS does the IPL podcast. “There’s no choice, it’s pot luck whether you get a good hotel or not. The government have chosen certain hotels to be the quarantine hotels.”
“I posted a few Instagram stories and some of the England boys were messaging me asking what it’s like and I was saying it wasn’t the most enjoyable thing you ever have to do, I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy.
“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,” he had added.
Marlon Samuels slams Ben Stokes:
While Stokes’ comment was perhaps light-hearted, Marlon Samuels was not at all pleased with it. The two-time T20 World Cup-winner took to Instagram to post a couple of comments on his story to slam the England cricketer in an abusive manner.
In his vile rant, Marlon Samuels also dragged Stokes’ wife in a derogatory manner while boasting about his skin tone. He further targeted Shane Warne too as well as some West Indies cricketers.
“no white boy could diss me in the sports and no get back diss look at this b*tch still thinking about me give me 14 days with you wife turn har into Jamaican in 14 seconds mate none of yall knows me that simple means it’s my f***ing superior skin tone,” wrote the West Indian.
“icc cricketing world ben b*tch stokes Shane b*tch warn and a few b*tch west Indians cricketers who sell out sextillion7thpower Ps nothing to f*ck with my army bigger and we richer,” he added.
Samuels and Stokes’ rivalry goes back to 2015 when the former mocked the England star with a salute when he was dismissed during day three of the second Test. The pair clashed again at the T20 World Cup final in 2016 when West Indies beat England in a thriller.
As far as Samuels’ rivalry with Shane Warne is concerned, the duo were involved in several ugly spats on the cricket field during the Big Bash League.
