    What is so special about Chris Jordan?

    You always see him in basically every T20 leagues including IPL. He is always also in England T20 squad. Yet, he seems very mediocre player to me.

    English players are always middling cricketers. The hype on the other hand is intense.

    sohail tanvir was a better bowler, especially with the new ball, jordan however is a far superior fielder.

    Specialist T20 race horse. His game plan is to bowl the sudden, surprise 92mph ball whilst bowling cutters and Yorkers in the rest of the over. Him and Tymall Mills have made a fortune like this

    Special was his pin point Yorkers in death overs, but rarely sees those in these days, may be due to dews.. other than that nothing much on his bowling..

    I remember once he bowled 4 or 5 Yorkers in an over (against India i guess)..

    He’s dropped his pace with age but there was no secret that this was a 150kmh bowler when he first broke into the scene. Never really looked to become an out and out Test bowler like Archer, so very early on he was working on his T20 and Limited overs skills as a bowler

    He was well above 130 in the recent T20 series against Australia

    Chris is a special bowler for England, you got to be British to fully appreciate him; each bowler has a game plan, Joffy to bounce you out, Marky to hurry you with his skiddy pace, Rashy to bamboozle you with variation and then our good ol boy Chris to finish you off at the death with his pin point yorkers and make it very difficult for the batsman to score, marvellous collective bowling unit

    Sam Curran is actually pretty good for his age, if he develops he would be asset to them in all formats.

    His pace has dropped ai but good enough to bowl My Finch, you should abandon all discussions about pace with our Indian friends

    He's a jack of all trades and master of none.

    He's lucky that T20 cricket leagues arebaround, or he'd be nowhere in his career.

    He is a very handy T20 player. He can hit big and can chip in with good overs.

    But, he is probably not good enough for ODI or Test.

    He is a T20 specialist, England are sound enough to recognise that each format has specialist requirements, this is why we are so successful Saj and have the best set up in the world

    He is a mediocre overratted player. He is lucky he is born in this age of 20 20 , otherwise he would not have played more than 5 OD for England team.

    Chris Jordan is still a better LOI player than Moeen Ali who is a match loser and hence deserves a run in England T20 team ahead of Ali bhai.

    As an overseas player competing for one of just 4 spots, he doesnt cut it. He has been useless in IPL whenever he has been picked and thats rare anyways. His death over stuff is not much better than an avg Indian seamer as he, even on his best days, will give away 2 boundary deliveries per over. Cant see him play anymore

    Add Tom Curran to the list. Utter trash bowlers. And these two are first-choice bowlers for England in T20s. Remember Jade Dernbach?

    I think only one of them plays when Stokes is back. Most probably Jordan, though both are equally useless.

    i saw a stat somewhere once where he had the highest percentage of yorkers bowled amongst all the bowlers in t20 i think over a two year period, he was well ahead of the pack, england like to give their players set roles, he fits those niches perfectly
