Blessed with a lethal yorker and impeccable accuracy, Chris Jordan is one of the most-feared death bowlers in world cricket today. You can trust him to land some big blows with the bat at the death too. And oh, did we mention, our very own MI man was also a classmate of Rihanna’s?
Born and raised in Barbados, he moved to England with a sporting scholarship from Dulwich College and it was not long before the pacer started showcasing his talents at the domestic level. With his maternal grandparents being British citizens, he qualified to play for both the West Indies and England and chose the latter. Since making his international debut in 2013, he has been an integral part of the England setup, especially in T20I cricket, and is his country’s highest wicket-taker in the format. He was also a part of the 2022 T20 World Cup winning squad.
Over the last decade, he’s been one of the most in-demand all-rounders going around in franchise cricket. Post his IPL debut in 2016 for RCB, he has turned up for SRH, PBKS and CSK since, picking up 27 wickets in 28 matches. He joins us for the end of the 2023 season, replacing fellow Barbados-born Englishman Jofra Archer in the squad.
