The tall English bowler of the Caribbean background, Chris Jordan is an English bowler, who with a plethora of skills has established as a potent limited-overs bowler. Jordan burst onto the County circuit back in 2007 as an 18-year-old where he picked up 20 wickets in five county championship matches for Surrey. After few years of constant injuries, the Barbadian came into his own in the 2013 season when he claimed 6-48 on his debut against Yorkshire to earn an England Lions call-up.
Jordan finally made his England debut against Australia and picked up three wickets in Southampton. However, with inconsistent form and constant injuries, Jordan has been in and out of the side and in recent years have focussed on being seen as a T20 bowler. He is currently representing Sussex Sharks in the Vitality Blast.
