Jamaica and West Indies all-rounder Marlon Samuels has escaped punishment for his role in an on-field clash with Shane Warne during the Australian Big Bash League.

Samuels, playing for the Melbourne Renegades, and Warne, the captain of Melbourne Stars, almost came to blows during a heated exchange in Melbourne on January 6.
Samuels had thrown his bat at the leg-spinner but it did not hit the Australian.
Warne was handed a one-match suspension and fined $4,700 while Samuels' hearing was postponed as he was in hospital following an injury to his eye in the same game.
The hearing took place today and Code of Conduct commissioner John Price felt Samuels' reaction was due to "extreme provocation" from Warne.
Samuels received an official reprimand for "unbecoming behaviour."
Another charge to engage in inappropriate and deliberate physical contact with other players or official was dismissed.
