Mitchell McClenaghan Bashes Pakistani Journalist For Criticising New Zealand’s Performance In Match Against West Indies

New Zealand’s stint at the ICC T20 world cup 2024 seems out of character for the usually well-performing team. New Zealand lost their first match in the tournament, that they played against Afghanistan by a whopping 84 runs, followed by a loss against West Indies in their second match by 13 runs.

The team’s captain Kane Williamson is facing criticism after his below par performance in both matches, scoring 9(13) and 1(2) respectively against Afghanistan and West Indies

However, supporters of the Pakistan men’s cricket team do not qualify to criticise other teams for their poor performance in the tournament, especially taking into consideration Pak’s losses in all the 3 matches they have played in the championship till now.

Pakistani Journalist Criticises Kane Williamson

Imran Siddique, a sports journalist from Pakistan‘s popular news channel Dawn News has been posting one too many posts on X (previously Twitter) about New Zealand‘s Kane Williamson not being able to perform in the T20 World Cup 2024 due to his involvement in IPL 2024

“This is What Happens when you Prefer Money over National Duty” Siddique has posted, bashing Williamson’s willingness to be there in the IPL instead of playing against Pakistan in the Pakistan Tour.

Kane Williamson was a player in IPL team Gujarat Titans, led by Indian batsman Shubman Gill in the IPL 2024 season, that ended too close to the opening match of T20 World Cup 2024. Several players were not able to practise ahead of the ICC tournament because of their commitments with the IPL.

However, it must be noted that Williamson’s GT had been out of the run for IPL 2024 trophy before even the playoffs.

Doing a comparative analysis, we are able to clearly see that Sun Risers Hyderabad captain Pat Cummins is doing great in the T20 World Cup despite playing in the IPL 2024 finals.

Mitchell McClenaghan Bashes Pakistani Journalist for his remarks

Ex bowler in the New Zealand team, Mitchell McClenaghan has come to his former team’s support as the Pakistani journalist posted negative remarks on X. 

“This is What Happens when you Prefer Money over National Duty.

New Zealand Had a great Chance to prepare themselves for World Cup 2024 on Pakistan Tour but their Main Players Choose IPL and now they are out of the World Cup” Siddique’s post quoted.

To this, McClenaghan bashed the Pakistan Team’s performance, as they lost matches against Ireland and the new USA team.

“Very poor take. 

You lost games to our C side, Ireland and the USA” McClenaghan tweeted, after quoting Siddique’s post.

It seems like Pakistani journalists will find one way or the other to blame the Indian team and the IPL for low performance of other players, overlooking facts.
