The NZ allrounder was part of the Karachi Kings outfit in Pakistan Super League (PSL). The cricketer featured in merely one match against Multan Sultans before leaving the tournament midway due to the global outbreak of coronavirus.
McClenaghan, who was supposed to be a part of the Mumbai Indians (MI) franchise in the upcoming cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL) may have to spend more time in New Zealand than expected as the IPL has also been postponed till April 15.
The COVID-10 positive cases have been on the rise with the United Kingdom (UK) having already reported over 2000 cases. The toll in India is inching close to the 200-mark.
