VIDEO: It's just not cricket as Warne and Samuels go toe-to-toe
Shane Warne and Marlon Samuels involved in ugly bust-up in T-20 clash.

SHANE WARNE AND Marlon Samuels were involved in a foul-mouthed clash on Sunday when the T-20 match they were involved in boiled over in front of a record crowd.

Spin legend Warne, captaining the Melbourne Stars, was annoyed that Samuels, playing for city-rivals the Renegades, had earlier pulled back David Hussey when the batsman was turning for a second run.

And when it was Samuels’s turn to bat later in the game, Warne greeted the West Indian with the words “F*ck you, Marlon.”

In the next over, when Warne was fielding, he threw the ball at the Jamaican, a move Samuels reacted to by throwing his bat down the pitch towards the former Australian international.

The two players squared up and had to be separated by the umpires.

Warne, who was wearing a microphone for on-field comments to aid TV coverage, told commentators: “What are you meant to do when someone throws a bat at you?”

Samuels was later forced to retire hurt when he top-edged a Lasith Malinga delivery into his eye. With blood gushing from his face, he needed hospital treatment.

The only consolation for Samuels was that his Renegades team won by nine wickets in front of a record Australian domestic T-20 crowd at the Melbourne Cricket Ground of 46,581.
