ICC World Twenty20 Final : Marlon Samuels taunts Shane Warne after West Indies win

After helping West Indies to their second ICC World Twenty20 title on Sunday, veteran batsman Marlon Samuels sarcastically dedicated the victory and his man of the match award to his bête noire Shane Warne.

West Indies chased down a tricky target of 155 runs against a resilient English side in front of a capacity Eden Garden crowd with two balls remaining in the match.

Samuels finished 85 not out from 66 balls on Sunday, helping West Indies haul in their target of 156 after slumping to 3-11 in the Kolkata decider.

The veteran, who has had a running battle with Warne since an ugly confrontation during a Big Bash League match in 2013, dedicated his man-of-the-match award to the Australian icon.

"I played a Test series in Australia (recently) and every day, Shane Warne has a problem with me," Samuels said.

"I've never disrespected him.

"I don't know. Maybe because my face is real and his face is not?"
