Pune: Pune Warriors India allrounder Marlon Samuels on Friday returned home to Jamaica owing to a groin injury and also to be by the side of his mother, who has sustained a knee fracture.
The Man-of-the-Match of the ICC World T20 final played only two games for Pune this season scoring only eight runs and taking a single wicket. According to a team sources, since the injury was taking time to heal, Samuels headed back home to be by the side of his ailing mother.
However, a possibility remains that the Jamaican might come back to India if Pune somehow manage to make it to the knock-out rounds. Pune are currently eighth on the points table.
