Mitchell McClenaghan answered a fan's question after he had asked the New Zealand pacer whether he reckons that he will be able to represent his national team once again. McClenaghan had played his last international match for the Black Caps in May 2018. Since then, he has been playing franchise cricket all over the world. The New Zealander represents the Mumbai Indians in the IPL with whom he has been a part of their three title triumphs.
During a recent Question & Answer session with fans on social media, a fan had asked McClenaghan whether they will ever get to see him back in the Kiwi jersey to which the left-arm speedster replied by saying that he does not think so.
