Mitchell McClenaghan Biography
Tall and well-built, the left-handed Mitchell McClenaghan has, among other attributes, the rare ability to extract bounce of a length. Owing to his pace, control, movement, and consistency over the past few years, has proved to be an integral part of New Zealand’s limited-overs bowling attack.
Mitchell McClenaghan first grabbed attention with a spell of five for 36 for New Zealand Emerging Players against England Lions. A good stint with Auckland earned him his maiden national call against South Africa in 2012 in a T20I. Called up for ODIs, he claimed four for just 20 at Paarl, thus becoming the second New Zealand bowler to claim four wickets on ODI debut.
He joined Lancashire in 2013, where his main claim to fame was his five for just 29 against Nottinghamshire, where he was named Man of the Match in a losing cause. Later that year, he claimed five for 56 against West Indies — once again in a winning cause.
