NZ's Mitchell McClenaghan responds to Hafeez's snide remark over abandoned tour

New Zealand fast bowler Mitchell McClenaghan has hit out at Pakistani all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez for blaming the players for the abandoned tour.

Hafeez took to Twitter and made a snide remark about the Kiwi players leaving for Dubai through the same route they deemed unsafe a day earlier when the tour was abandoned.

“Thanks to the secutity of pakistan forces to make arrangements to @BLACKCAPS to reach at airport Safe & Sound. Wonder same route & same security but no threat today???” wrote Hafeez on Twitter.

Responding to him in a now-deleted tweet, McClenaghan wrote:

“Come now bro. This has a bad taste to it… Don’t blame the players or the organisation… blame our government. They have only acted on the advice they have received. I’m absolutely certain these young men – all wanting to prove themselves wanted to play. they had no choice,” he wrote.
