Born in Hamilton, Mitchell Santner represents Northern Districts in domestic cricket. A promising season in 2014-15 promoted him up the ranks and soon he was selected in the national team after the retirement of Daniel Vettori post the 2015 World Cup.

Santner is a utility cricket, who bowls left-arm spin and is quite handy with the bat. In his debut ODI series, Mitchell smashed Adil Rashid for 28 runs in an over and displayed his big-hitting prowess. Considered as the successor of Daniel Vettori, Santner caught attention worldwide after his devastating spell of 4/11 against India in the World T20 2016.

In November 2015, Mitchell Santner got the opportunity to make his first Test appearance against Australia and by doing so he also became the first player in history to debut in a Day-Night Test match. His knock of 71 in the Kanpur Test against the Indian spinners on a turning surface showed his ability to bat in different conditions.

Santner was picked to play in the Indian T20 League by the Chennai franchise in 2018 and in the following year, he hit a last-ball six to win a thrilling game against Rajasthan. His international career has not taken off the way he would have liked to but given his talent, Santner is expected to achieve great success.
