Jamaica batsman Marlon Samuels will miss the final of Headley-Weekes Trophy against Windward Islands after failing to recover from a hamstring injury. The injury had forced the batsman to miss the semi-final against Barbados last week. Opener Jon-Ross Campbell has been named as Samuels' replacement in the squad.

Samuels has played just one game for the side this season, scoring 12 and 11 in Jamaica's last league match against Combined Campuses and Colleges after his return from the World T20. The 59-run win in that game against CCC helped Jamaica qualify for the semi-finals, where they managed a close one-wicket win against defending champions Barbados.

The final against Windwards will give Jamaica a chance to win their sixth first-class title in seven years. They had won the title for five successive years, before Barbados became champions last season.
