The expletive-laden messages came in response to a recent joke from the Stokes, saying that he wouldn’t wish quarantine on his “worst enemy” Samuels
Former West Indies all-rounder Marlon Samuels has taken an odd turn in his rivalry with Ben Stokes by posting abusive messages on Instagram against him.
The expletive-laden messages came in response to a recent joke from Stokes, saying that he wouldn’t wish quarantine on his “worst enemy” Samuels.
Stokes made the joke while speaking of the demands of quarantining. The England all-rounder has been forced to remain in hotel rooms in Auckland and Dubai in recent months as part of the terms of travelling during the Covid-19 pandemic.
"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,” said Stokes, reports The Cricketer.

"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."

Samuels reacted on an Instagram post over the comments, saying: “no white boy could diss me in the sports and no get back diss look at this b*tch still thinking about me."
The former West Indies star also mentioned Stokes’ wife in a derogatory manner, saying: “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.”
Samuels and Stokes’ rivalry goes back to 2015 when the former mocked the England star with a salute when he was dismissed during a Test match. The pair clashed again at the T20 World Cup final in 2016 when West Indies beat England in a thriller.
