CSK new boy, Mitchell Santner is extremely excited and looking forward to donning the Chennai’s iconic yellow jersey in the upcoming IPL season.
In a recent interview, he mentioned how he was looking forward to playing with the legendary MS Dhoni, as Santner hopes to learn a lot from MSD.
“I’m happy I’ll be bowling to (MS) Dhoni in the nets rather than in a match like I have been,” said Santner.
“I’m definitely looking forward to joining the culture at CSK, talking to and playing alongside experienced players such as skipper Dhoni, (Suresh) Raina and (Ravindra) Jadeja in a great team environment,” the 26-year-old Santner said.
“I’m very excited to be a part of this year’s IPL and looking forward to joining the Chennai family. The IPL is probably the biggest T20 competition in the world, so I am excited to showcase my skills on the big stage and ultimately help CSK win games and ideally the championship,” he said.
“I’ve been lucky enough to play in India in all three formats and have had some reasonable success along the way against some of the best players going around, so I’m looking to draw on some of that experience in the upcoming IPL,” he said.
“I enjoy bowling in India because the conditions can benefit spinners on some slower wickets and playing in front of packed stadiums, full of fans is also something you don’t get back home,” he said.
Santner will be a big player for CSK this season, as they look to make a triumphant return to the Indian Premier League.
