“Meaningless Series”: NZ’s Mitchell McClenaghan responds to T20I loss

New Zealand cricketer Mitchell McClenaghan has called the ongoing India vs New Zealand T20I series as “meaningless series” that hasn’t gone down well with the Indian fans. T

The out of favor New Zealand player used the phrase “meaningless series” to define the T20I series which New Zealand lost with a game still to play.

While replying to a fan’s remark, McClenaghan also stressed on the fact 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. He also reminded the fan that India enjoyed a 10-day rest after bowing out of the T20 World Cup early.

To a fan’s post that said, “New Zealand lost the series,” 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?.”

New Zealand lost the T20 World Cup final against Australia on November 14 in Dubai and had to play the first T20I in India three days later on November 17 in Jaipur.

The visiting side had lost the first T20I by five wickets. On being asked to bat, New Zealand posted a competitive total of 164 runs in 20 overs which India overhauled with two balls remaining.
