Mitchell Santner was born on 5 Febrauary 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.
Mitchell Santner made his First-Class debut for Northern district in 2011 and since then has played for the same team in the New Zealand domestic setup. The left arm orthodox spinner had a stint in Worcestershire in 2016-17.
Having played only 19 List A matches for Northern Districts, the selectors saw the potential in him and fast-tracked him to the national side.
Santner made his Test debut against Australia on 27 November 2015, which incidentally was the first ever day-night Test match. In the first inning, Santner scored 31 runs of 46 deliveries and even took the wicket of Josh Hazelwood by cleaning him up.

Mitchell Santner made his ODI debut against England at Edgbaston on June 9, 2015, months after the 2015 World Cup. Kiwis were looking for a replacement for Daniel Vettori and Santner came across as the perfect like-to-like replacement.
He played each of the 5 matches in that series – got 7 wickets and scored 97 runs. His first international wicket came when he dismissed Sam Bilings for 3. During the fourth ODI of the series, he hit 28 runs off Adil Rashid in one over, which is the second most runs off one over ever posted in England.

Santner was phenomenal against India as New Zealand stopped India from chasing 127, despite having a stacked batting line up. Santner picked 4 wickets which included the likes of Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya and Suresh Raina. Arguably, this was his best performance in the tournament and the coming years as some indifferent form and injuries meant that Santner was dropped from the team.
Mitchell Santner had a lucky escape after Australia’s appeal proved “inconclusive” for the third umpire to overturn the on-field umpire’s not-out decision on the third day of the ongoing Boxing Day Test at MCG.
The gutsy all-rounder after impressing on the world stage was bought by MS Dhoni led CSK for just INR 50 lacs in the 2019 auctions.
The Kiwi bowler has to be one of the most economical buys for CSK. The Kiwi allrounder, however, played only 4 matches in the 2019 season and managed to pick 4 wickets.
The 2020 season is expected to be a breakout season for him as CSK will be looking to employ his services in the dusty pitches of Sharjah and Abu Dhabi.
