Profile

In Mitch Santner New Zealand cricket found a strong resembling replacement for one of their veterans and the most successful bowler in ODIs, Daniel Vettori. And this was not just because Santner too bowled left-arm orthodox but mainly because he carried the same potential to perform and excel when he joined the team that Vettori had displayed in his younger days.


He toured England in 2015 but did not get to feature in the Tests, even though he was part of the squad for the same. He did however make the cut in the ODIs and the lone T20I that followed. Even though he is a bowling allrounder, a glimpse of his batting capabilities was seen in the 4 th ODI where he smacked 44 off just 19 balls, coming in at No.7. 


He had a decent T20I debut in the same tour, picking up 2/28 in his four overs and was the best bowler for the Kiwis in that lone T20I. Santner shone in the 2016 World T20 for New Zealand, picking up 11 wickets in the tournament and got his career best 4/11 against India in the very first game of the tournament, where he and Ish Sodhi ran riot to bowl out India for just 79. But besides this, he had a ratherlacklustre 2016-17 season.


He is a very shrewd and intelligent bowler, unfortunately, the same could not spill over to his batting, in terms of performance, even though he possessed good technique and a stable temperament. Santner was picked to play for Chennai in the 2018 Indian T20 League, but missed the season owing to injury. He appeared in the 2019 edition and featured in 4 games for the franchise. He also featured in all the games for the Black Caps in the 2019 World Cup. His most notable performance in the tournament came against India in the semi-final with figures of 2/34,
wherein he picked the important wickets of Rishab Pant and Hardik Pandya, and was the second-best bowler in the game, behind Matt Henry’s 3 wickets.
