#10 Chris Jordan

ICC World Twenty20 India 2016: Semi-Final: England v New Zealand
The lively right arm pacer of England has his roots back in Barbados

Chris Jordan is probably one of the brightest prospects in store for England. The right arm pacer, who generates a fair amount of pace, not only is a trump card in the death overs but is also a valuable asset to the team owing to his all-rounding skills.

Jordan was born in Barbados. Both his parents too belonged to Barbados whereas his grandparents were British citizens. After completing his initial education from Bridgetown, Barbados, he eventually moved to England to complete his formal education at Dulwich college which offered him a sports scholarship.

After making his debut for Surrey in 2007 and constantly delivering some good performances, the fast bowler broke onto the international scene with his first appearance for England against Australia. He has represented England in 8 Tests, 31 ODIs, and 26 T20s and picked up 21, 43, and 31 wickets respectively.
