Only Dwayne Bravo took more wickets during the CPL 2015 than Santokie, who claimed 16 victims in 40 overs at an average of 19.75.
Meanwhile, most recently in the Masters Champions T20, the West Indies bowler took four wickets in as many balls for the Sagittarius Strikers, dismissing international quartet Kumar Sangakkara, Brad Hodge, Justin Kemp and Rana Naved-ul-Hasan. There was also a run out in the same over.
His overall T20 statistics read as 134 wickets at an average of 15.
Style and substance
Santoke is not overly dissimilar to Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga, with his slingy motion making him hard to get away for runs.
Being a left-arm seamer, his style of bowling is also something that many batsmen wouldn’t have too much experience of facing, while Santoke has one of the most deceptive slower balls in the game.
What’s more, a number of years playing in England helped develop his swing bowling technique and this can also be an asset in certain conditions.
