Read: What’s Mitch McClenaghan’s second-favorite IPL team?

Mitch IPL team

New Zealand cricketer Mitchell McClenaghan seems to be making most of his time in the COVID-19 quarantine phase. Ever since returning home from the PSL, the fast-bowler has been quite active on social-media; often uploading funny posts, and, on several occasions, interacting with his fans. His on-screen smartness further adds to the fun of browsing through his stories; we’ve already covered him two-times in the past week.

Turns out, @Mitch_Savage has a lot more coming to keep us entertained during this stressful global-lock-down-like phase. Continuing with his Q/A session on Twitter from yesterday, McClenaghan decided to answer a rather interesting question. Twitter user Vinay (@Vinayro36) asked Mitch about his second favorite team from the IPL.

For context; McClenaghan has, on several past occasions, expressed his love and camaraderie towards his IPL home franchise; the Mumbai Indians. After all, he has enjoyed as many as three season-victories with his favorite MI-paltan. He also shares an interesting auction-dynamic with the team; although Mumbai have never purchased him off the auction-pool, he has twice been drafted into the team (in 2015 and 2018) as their first choice replacement player. In fact, in 2015 his scintillating bowling-form; where he claimed 18-wickets in 12 games even helped MI win the IPL. A valued asset, overall, with 71-wickets from 56-matches, no doubt; MI and Mitch share a deep-bond spanning through five-seasons. 

Back to the question. Fans speculated for quite some time, dropping in their own answers to Vinay’s question. Mitch soon ended the wait by posting this simple answer.
