West Indian Samuels out with injury

Kingston (Jamaica), April 25 (IANS/CMC): Jamaica will have to do without West Indies batsman Marlon Samuels for the Headley/Weekes Trophy final against Windward Islands starting Saturday in St. Lucia.

Samuels has failed to recover from the hamstring injury that forced him out of last week’s semi-final against Barbados at Kensington Oval, and will not travel to Castries, reports CMC.

He has been replaced in the 13-man squad by opener Jon-Ross Campbell, the only change to the squad from the semifinal.

Samuels has played just one first class match since returning from the Twenty20 World Cup, scoring 12 and 11 against Combined Campuses and Colleges in the last preliminary round game at 3Ws Oval in Barbados.

Jamaica reached the final with a nerve-wracking one-wicket win over Barbados Tuesday while the Windwards crushed Trinidad and Tobago by 234 runs inside three days Monday.
