He has the ability to change the game with his big hitting in the middle order. He also brings useful variations with the ball and plenty of experience bowling at the death, so having that option gives the team added flexibility," ESPNcricinfo quoted McDonald as saying. <p></p> <p></p>Christian is currently playing for Delhi Daredevils in the ongoing 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). He, however, was picked for only four out of 12 games.
