Mitchell John McClenaghan
St Lucia Stars
11th June 1986
The fiery left-arm pacer, Mitchell McClenaghan from New Zealand can make any batsman uncomfortable with his pace and bounce. McClenaghan is a wicket taking bowler in this format with 155 wickets with a strike rate of 16.4 in the 115 T20 games he has played so far. The 31-year-old made his entry into the domestic circuit at the aged of 21 in 2007, and went on to play his first T20 in domestic cricket in Feb 2009. After making his International debut in 2012, McClenaghan has always been the go to wicket taker for his captain in both ODIs & T20Is. Making his debut in the CPL for the St Lucia Stars, this impact bowler is an able replacement for Lasith Malinga.
McClenaghan was a vital part of the Mumbai Indians squad in their title winning run this season. Along with his experience in the IPL, his experience in Natwest T20 Blast makes him an exciting prospect in the CPL this year.
