Chris Jordan recently played in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 for England. He played just the semi-final and the final and came up with notable performances. He came into the England XI as injured Mark Wood’s replacement. He picked up 4 for 43 against India in the semi-final and 2 for 27 in the final against Pakistan.
Chris Jordan’s career has been often plagued by injuries but his exploits in the shortest format of the game are well known. Known to be a quality death bowler and for some hard-hitting shots lower down the order, Chris Jordan was drafted for the first time into the IPL in 2016 by the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Apart from Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB in 2016), he played for Chennai Super Kings (CSK in 2022), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH in 2017-18), and Punjab Kings (PBKS in 2020-21). Chris Jordan has played 28 IPL games and has picked 27 scalps at an average of 30.85 and a steep economy of 9.32.

1. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)
In Tim Southee and Umesh Yadav, KKR have two good new ball bowlers. KKR traded Lockie Ferguson back who generally bowls as the first change for his national side. In Chris Jordan, KKR will get an out-and-out specialist death bowler.
His performances in his last two T20Is for England show why he is trusted by his teammates to get the job done. With a remaining purse of INR 7.50 crores and three overseas slots available, Chris Jordan should be one of KKR’s targets although he has registered himself for INR 2 Crores-the maximum base price bracket in IPL 2023 auctions.
