Sydney: The Melbourne Renegades have said that Marlon Samuels is being `unfairly treated,` after his ugly on-field clash with Shane Warne during a Big Bash League (BBL) match at the MCG on Sunday.
Chief executive Stuart Coventry said a series of controversies throughout the BBL had left Samuels wondering what he had done to repeatedly become headlines stuff.
According to news.com.au, as Samuels lay on a bed recovering after a night at the Epworth Hospital with a suspected broken eye socket, Coventry feared the unwanted focus could put the international future of BBL players at stake.
