Martin Guptill owned a Bangladesh fan for his hilarious comment who tried to troll the New Zealand opener for not being a part of the series that the Black Caps played with the Bangladesh national team.
There was already a lot of bad blood between the cricketers of New Zealand and the rest of the world, considering the fact that they chose to withdraw from the series just moments ago of the first match being played after security concerns being relayed out.
There weren’t any clarifications dished out for the backing out from the Pakistan tour barring a media release that stated that the team was made aware of a security breach which though wasn’t validated, yet was concerning enough for any cricketer present.
New Zealand’s team to tour Pakistan and Bangladesh wasn’t their best squad
New Zealand sent their second-string squad for the Pakistan series and the Bangladesh tour that preceded it. Earlier, a Bangladeshi fan picked out Jimmy Neesham for not being a part of the Bangladesh tour that the all-rounder clarified about.
Martin Guptill was the next man to be in the array of attacks from a Bangladeshi cricket fan, as the latter opted to single out the Kiwi opener after he was not a part of the travelling Blackcaps squad.
Marin Guptill came up with hilarious response to silence the Bangladeshi supporter
The Bangladeshi supporter tweeted, “This is not fair. You are my favorite from @BLACKCAPS. But you are avoiding Bangladesh tour because of IPL This is not expected from an icon like you.”
This is not expected from a icon like you " hero"😰

Guptill scorched the fan with a scathing reply that silenced him for the good. The New Zealand opener responded, “I’m not sure where you get your information from, but I’m not in the IPL.”
I’m not sure where you get your information from but I’m not in the IPL.

New Zealand did go ahead with the Bangladesh tour as planned but afterword of potential security threat, they didn’t have the courage to dart forward with the Pakistan tour that resulted in a lot of bad blood.
