As his Twitter handle, @Mitch_Savage, suggests, McClenaghan is a sharp, witty, funny, and active Twitter user who always gives back what is dished out. Being active on social media for an active or ex-cricketer is a tough nut to crack as they constantly face volleys from the fans.
Former New Zealand pacer McClenaghan, who is a 4-time IPL winner with Mumbai Indians in 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2020, gave a hilarious, and also enraging reply to an RCB fan who had Virat Kohli’s photo in his profile picture on Sunday when RCB hosted the Rajasthan Royals at the M. Chinnaswamy stadium.
Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell were involved in a massive partnership of 127 (66) vs RR for the 3rd wicket after RCB had lost two early wickets.
Delighted by the way these two were going about their business, McClenaghan tweeted: “While I’m not an RCB fan – I’m a Faf and Maxwell fan. Damn these guys are playing beautifully. #RCBvRR #IPL2023”
For some weird reason, a fan posted a an unexpected tweet, saying that RCB don’t need fans like McClenaghan.
“We RCBIANS don’t want fans like u mitch,” a Twitter user with handle @Pavancool06J and name “kohlibhakt” replied.
Now, while this fan clearly doesn’t speak for all RCB fans, Mitchell wasn’t going to take such b******t comments easily and replied back in his savage, trolling the entire RCB franchise with just three words!
“Don’t like trophies?” McClenaghan replied.
Such savage, and hilarious was the reply from the ex-Kiwi star that even the RCB fans, though feeling frustrated, had a laugh at it.
Here, check out this Twitter banter between McClenaghan and a Virat Kohli fan:
Meanwhile, Virat Kohli had a forgettable outing today as he was dismissed for a golden duck by Trent Boult, swinging in and lbw out.
After that collossal partnership between Du Plessis and Maxwell, RCB kept on losing wickets and eventually finished with 189.
