Mitchell Santner to return to Worcestershire for 2017 T20 Blast

Santner, a left-arm spin bowling all-rounder, will link up with Worcestershire Royals after the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, which is being held in England during the month of June.

The 24-year-old's stay at New Road was cut short earlier this year when he broke a finger while fielding on his Worcestershire debut against Durham in the Natwest T20 Blast campaign.

He said,



It's fantastic that I've got the chance to come back again next summer and hopefully I can make up for the lost time and make an impact with bat and ball.



After already signing Australian seamer John Hastings, Director of Cricket at Worcestershire County Cricket Club, Steve Rhodes was delighted to be able to add Santner to their line-up.
Rhodes said,



There is some unfinished business with Mitch. 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.




Next year's Blast will be concentrated into a block of games in the peak of summer with group matches to take place between July 7 and August 18.
