Shane Warne defends Big Bash bust-up with Marlon Samuels

Former Australia spinner Shane Warne has defended his behaviour after his confrontation with Marlon Samuels in the Big Bash tournament on Sunday.
Warne, who was suspended on Tuesday as his Melbourne Stars side beat Sydney Thunder by 13 runs to reach the semi-finals of the Twenty20 event, said: “[Sunday] was emotion and passion.

“Sometimes we like to see that in sport – we’re not robots.

Warne, 43, the second-highest Test wicket taker of all time, exchanged words with West Indian Samuels during the Melbourne derby between the Stars and Renegades. Read more
