Natwest T20 Blast 2017: Mitchell Santner roped in by Worcestershire

Londres: New Zealand all-rounder Mitchell Santner will be back playing for English county Worcestershire in the T20 Blast for 2017 season, the club announced Wednesday. The 24-year-old – who has been capped by his country in all three international formats – will re-join his team-mates after the Champions Trophy hosted by England in June 2017. Santner said he is hoping for a longer spell at the county than 2016 season, when a broken finger on his debut brought a premature end to his stay. “I really enjoyed my time at Worcester with a great bunch of lads and it was so frustrating for me to pick up that injury in the very first T20 game,” said Santner, a left-arm spinner and useful lower-order batsman. Mitchell Santner’s performance huge positive for New Zealand, says Kane Williamson
“It’s fantastic that I’ve got the chance to come back again next summer and hopefully I can make up for lost time and make an impact with bat and ball,” he added. Santner must first receive visa-clearance and a no objection certificate from New Zealand cricket, but Worcestershire’s director of cricket Steve Rhodes is looking forward to welcoming a player who has a lot to prove. “There is some unfinished business with Mitch,” said Rhodes. “We know he is a good player, an international player, but I always like to have signings where people have got something to prove and I think he feels that way so that’s why it is an exciting signing.”
Earlier, on his first visit to India, Mitchell Santner has made a good impression with his all-round performance and that’s a huge positive for the New Zealand side from the Kanpur Test, captain Kane Williamson said, reported PTI .
