Jordan promises to return to ODI fold

Chris Jordan played his part in folding out India for a sub-par total. The 28-year-old, yorker specialist, who was included in the England squad only for the T20 series, admitted inconsistency hampered his chances for the ODI and Test squads, but was determined to make amends by putting up an impressive show in India.

The 28-year-old was naturally disappointed on missing out on the ODI squad for West Indies, but was confident of making a comeback to both ODIs and Test teams.

“I can say that my consistency at that particular moment wasn't to the level I wanted it to be but that will not discourage or dishearten me. I do still have opportunities and I hope to push my case to make it back," he said.

“It was a very nice feeling to actually come back into the team, not being involved in the one-dayers, coming from the Big Bash. Obviously we have had a tough time on the tour. The last ODI win and now the first in T20I has given us a little bit of momentum. Hopefully we can keep that going.” Jordan said.

Jordan emerged as death over specialist during England’s run to the final in the 2016 World Cup and his wide yorkers stood out in Kanpur. "It is a skill that I have worked on very, very hard whether it's in the nets or actually in games. Most batsmen obviously want the ball in their arc and if you bowl at the stumps a lot that's in their arc so you're backing yourself to execute the skill anyway but I find that with the wide yorker there still has to be some precision with it,” Jordan observed.

Jordan, who played for the Royal Challengers Bangalore last year, was keen to be the part of IPL again. "I'm going back into the auction and obviously hope to get picked up. It's a tournament I really enjoyed, it really helped develop me as a player from a mental point of view, playing in front of big crowds every other day almost and you're under a lot of pressure to deliver and perform.”
