“When you start to get frustrated just think… it could be worse… At least you’re not stuck inside with your wife!! Love You,” the note read.

“Straight home into isolation, get home to this note from my legendary wife who’s gone to stay with her parents for a few weeks. See you guys in 14 days,” McClenaghan wrote.
McClenaghan, who plays for Mumbai Indians in Indian Premier League, played for Karachi Kings in the ongoing 5th season of PSL. The left-arm pacer played one game for Karachi Kings on March 6 before heading home.
