NEW Zealand international Mitchell Santner will play for Worcestershire in this summer’s t20 Blast.
Santner, 23, will join last season’s quarter-finalists in mid-may having made his international breakthrough on last summer’s tour of England.
The all-rounder went on to make his Test debut against Australia in November and will link up with fellow Kiwi Matt Henry at Worcestershire.
Santner said: “It has been a breakthrough time for me in terms of New Zealand but I am always keen to develop my game and am looking forward to my first taste of county cricket.
“Worcestershire had a good run in the t20 last season and I hope I can play my part in helping them to enjoy another successful tournament.
“The club has had several New Zealand players in its ranks in recent years and I hope to make a positive contribution with ball and bat.”
