Mitchell Santner: A Brief Biography


Mitchell Santer

Mitchell Santner was born on 5 February 1992 in Hamilton. The Kiwi all-rounder always wanted to be a cricketer and his bowling similarity with Daniel Vettori allowed him to be drafted into the New Zealand senior side. He is the first player to make his international debut in a day-night Test.


After the retirement of Kiwi legend Daniel Vettori, the blackcaps were desperately looking for a similar bowler when they found out a 22 year-old Mitchell Santner who could be a like-for-like replacement for Vettori. Since making his debut in the international arena, Santner has become an integral part of the New Zealand cricketing setup.
