Mitchell McClenaghan Responds On IND vs NZ Series
In a reply to a fan, McClenaghan has stressed that New Zealand toured India 72 hours after losing the T20 World Cup final vs Australia and had to play three games within a span of five days. And he has also reminded that Team India enjoyed a 10-day rest after the T20 World Cup exit.
One of the fans posted stating that – “New Zealand lost the series,” And in reply to that tweet McClenaghan replied: “Did they? You mean in a meaningless series 72 hours after a WC final defeat with 3 games in 5 days playing a team with 10 days rest in their home conditions?.”
