Mitchell McClenaghan’s 6-year association with the Mumbai Indians ended this year when the New Zealand pacer went unsold in the IPL 2021 auction in February as Mumbai bought his compatriot, Adam Milne along with Marco Jansen, and Nathan Coulter Nile.

Mitchell McClenaghan has been part of the Rohit Sharma-led outfit since 2015 and was released ahead of IPL 2021. The franchise has always liked the Kiwi seamer, despite him not playing for New Zealand anymore, as they roped him as a replacement in 2018 and retained him for the next two seasons as well.
The left-arm speedster has been part of 4 title victories – but didn’t play a single game last season. In 56 matches, Mitchell McClenaghan snapped 71 wickets at an economy of 8.49 but his strike rate of 17.94 with the ball has been impressive.
He was the go-to bowler for Rohit Sharma in the powerplay and in the middle-overs but was replaced by Trent Boult last season.

On Thursday, a Twitter user asked him the reason for Mumbai not buying him at the auction. Mitchell McClenaghan, similar to his Twitter handle, “@Mitch_Savage” had a savage reply.

The 34-year-old has been active on Twitter recently. He picked his former franchise to reach the final once again, and to face the Chennai Super Kings, once again.

Mumbai Indians have defeated MS Dhoni’s side thrice – 2013, 2015, and 2017 – in an IPL final, and is the only team to have won more matches than they have lost against the 3-time champions. Mitchell McClenaghan is confident that the two sides will meet again for the silverware.

Rohit Sharma’s team will look to defend their title again like they successfully did last year – if they are successful in clinching their 6th trophy this year, then MI will become the first team to make a hat-trick of IPL titles.

On the other hand, MS Dhoni’s men are in the hunt for their 4th trophy, to redeem themselves for their disappointing campaign last season, and what could be their skipper’s last IPL as well.
