An ugly controversy erupted between Ben Stokes and Marlon Samuel after the latter was rattled by Stokes’ harmless jibe at him. Well, recently, in an interview, while expressing his feelings about the 14-day quarantine period that he had to go through, Ben jokingly said it was so bad that he wouldn’t wish it even for Samuels, his worst enemy.
Though Ben Stokes said all this in a funny way but the comments didn’t go down well with the Caribbean cricketer, who has replied with some nasty remarks for Stokes.
Samuel took to his social media and shared the statements made by Ben Stokes. Calling Stokes a ‘bi*ch’, Samuel further used derogatory remarks for Ben. He wrote:
“ICC cricketing world ben b**ch stokes Shane b**ch warn and a few b**ch west indians cricketers who sell out sextillion7thpower is nothing to f**k with my army bigger and we richer (Sic),”
In another story, Samuels wrote:
“no white boy could diss me in the sports and no get back diss look a this b**ch still thinking about me.”
Stokes, who is currently playing in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League finally reacted to the nasty comments made by Marlon Samuels. Ben took to his Instagram and shared a slideshow of the West Indies cricketer’s pictures featuring some of the controversial moments of Samuels on-field.
Ben didn’t write anything and it was just a slideshow of Samuels. The Instagram story featuring the slideshow was shared by a Twitter user, later on.

For the unversed, the rivalry between Ben and Marlon Samuels began in the year 2015 when Samuel gave a salute send-off after taking Stokes wicket. Later, describing him in his autobiography, Stokes wrote: “I do not like him one bit”. Not just this, the two also involved in a verbal battle during the 2016 T20 World Cup final.
