Mitchell Santner sends down quality left-arm spin besides chipping in industriously with the bat for New Zealand. His presence in the side bodes well for the balance of the Blackcaps' playing eleven, given all-rounders are worth their weight in gold in today's day and age. Santner would play a pivotal role in the upcoming T20 World Cup by leading the spin department alongside Todd Astle and Ish Sodhi. Part-timers Glenn Phillips and Mark Chapman ought to rely on tips and tricks from Santner to better survive in the high-pressure environs of the marquee event.
