Samuels is suffering from a suspected fractured eye socket.

However, prior to his departure Samuels is expected to face a Cricket Australia hearing for his part in an on-field fracas with Shane Warne in the same match.

Warne was suspended for a match and fined $4500 while Samuels faces two charges which have been delayed due to his eye injury.
