Chris Jordan joins Perth Scorchers for 2019-20 Big Bash

Sussex fast-bowler Chris Jordan will play in the upcoming Big Bash after being signed by Perth Scorchers.

The England international, who has previously played for Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Thunder in Australia's T20 competition, will be available for the entirety of the 2019-20 tournament, which runs from December 17 to February 8.

Speaking to the Scorchers website, CJ said: “When the opportunity for Perth came up it was a pretty hard one to turn down.

"I know from playing against them how competitive they are, and how successful they are, so I’m really looking forward to joining such a great franchise.

“I know from experience when the opposition hit a boundary in the stadium there’s no noise, but when the Scorchers are up and about and doing well everyone’s backing them to the hills… I’m looking forward to having some of that on my side!" 

Scorchers head coach Adam Voges added: "We’re really excited to have Chris on-board, he’s got great experience in T20 cricket and will do a terrific job with the ball, particularly his skills at the death.

"He also provides the all-round package with athleticism in the field and strong batting skills which will be great for the fans.

"Chris is very professional and will fit in well in the Scorchers set up, I haven’t heard a bad word about him."
