Mitchell Swepson overview

Mitchell Joseph Swepson is an Australian leg-spinner who was born on 4 October 1993 is an Australian cricketer. He made his international debut for the Australia cricket team in June 2018. 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.
