“Disappointed In You”: Fans Slam New Zealand Cricketer After His Tweet On India’s Series Win | Cricket News

Written by corres2

India thrashed New Zealand by a record 372 runs in the second Test at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai to win the two-match series 1-0 at home. New Zealand had saved the first Test by the skin of their teeth with debutant Rachin Ravindra putting in a stubborn batting display. But there was no denying Virat Kohli and his team in Mumbai as they steamrolled the visitors to register their 14th consecutive Test series win at home. Following India’s win, many current and past cricketers hailed the team for a fine showing in the series, but one New Zealand cricketer’s tweet has not gone down too well with fans on Twitter.

Pacer Mitchell McClenaghan, who has never played a Test for New Zealand, with his last international appearance coming in a T20I in 2018, seem to downplay India’s series triumph.

“Excited for India to beat the @ICC world test champions at home in there own conditions. Congrats,” tweeted McClenaghan.

The tweet didn’t sit well with either New Zealand or Indian fans, with both supporters slamming the left-arm fast bowler in the comments section.

India had lost to New Zealand in the ICC World Test Championship final in England but completely outplayed them in the recently-concluded Test series.

While the Indians have been unbeatable at home, they have been just as good away from home. Indian young guns came to the fore in Australia and without their talisman Virat Kohli, beat a full-strength Australian team in their own backyard for a famous Test series triumph Down Under.

India also breached Australia’s stronghold — the Gabba — with an absolutely stunning back-to-the-wall win, few in world cricket would have predicted.

India then travelled to England and twice got the better of the English before the Test series had to be halted due to Covid cases in the Indian camp.

Virat Kohli’s team were leading the Test series 2-1 when the fifth and final Test was postponed. India will have a chance to claim a series win in England when the rescheduled final Test is held in July next year.
