Just like any other spinner who hails from Brisbane, an immediate comparison was drawn to the legend Shane Warne.
Mitchell has made a niche of his own by bringing on some flippers and skidders and some occasional loopy deliveries. His antics got noticed by the selectors, who took note of his ability to make flat-trajectory deliveries spin significantly.
