Chris Jordan joins Big Bash side Sydney Thunder

Chris Jordan will head to Australia this winter to join Sydney Thunder for the final stages of the KFC Big Bash. 

The Sussex bowler has been recruited alongside New Zealand batsman Anton Devcich to replace England duo Jos Buttler and Joe Root. 

Most recently, Jordan was in action for England in the one off T20 international against Sri Lanka, taking 2-29 as the tourists won by 30 runs. 

He will join fellow Sharks, Jofra Archer, Tymal Mills and Rashid Khan in the competition, and can't wait to join up with his new side. 

Jordan told the Thunder's website: "The prospect of working with [head coach] Shane Bond is very exciting.

"The Big Bash is a real spectacle, it's run really well. Seeing so many kids in the crowds bodes well for the future, they are very enthusiastic fans and I'm looking forward to entertaining everyone. 
 
"When I step onto the field I like to play with a smile and play with passion and pride. The fans should expect a hundred percent every game and every moment."
