Following the recent announcement that Brendon McCullum has joined the club, Middlesex County Cricket Club are today delighted to announce the signing of fellow New Zealander Mitchell McClenaghan, who impressed in a brief spell in 2015.
The left arm paceman, 29, represented Middlesex in last season’s NatWest T20 Blast competition and in just four matches picked up eight wickets at an average of only thirteen with an economy rate of less than seven. His best bowling performance of 3 for 24 came against Sussex at Lord’s.
Internationally McClenaghan has represented the Black Caps on almost sixty occasions and has over 100 International T20 and ODI wickets to his name.
Speaking of the signing of McClenaghan, Angus Fraser, Middlesex’s Managing Director of Cricket, said:
"I am delighted to have Mitchell back playing T20 cricket for Middlesex this summer. He made a really positive impression on myself and everyone at the club in 2015.”
“He will join us after the IPL and be available to play in at least 12 of our group matches. He is also available to play Royal London One-Day Cup and County Championship cricket if needs require.”
"Mitchell gets modern limited over cricket, its mood, its uncertainty, its ups and downs and the fact a bowler needs to be deliberately unpredictable. He has the skills and mindset to be constantly competitive in these forms of the game. Mitchell makes things happen when he bowls and has an outstanding record in both 50 and 20 over cricket."
