Chris Jordan excited for his IPL stint
Chris Jordan excited for his IPL stint

Chris Jordan has time and again been a handy customer for England during the death overs. The right arm pacer hits the blockhole more often than not and he is considered a specialist for the shorter forms. Thus, it came as no surprise when the Royal Challengers Bangalore brought him on board as a replacement for injured Australian pacer Mitchell Starc.

Ahead of his side’s game against the Rising Pune Supergiants in Bangalore, Jordan interacted with the media and said that he was eager to get on the field. The pacer was seen practicing in the nets and was constantly aiming for the blockhole. In his interaction, Jordan said that if he got a chance, he would definitely give his best shot.

“It’s been pretty overwhelming. Everyone has made me settle in very quickly and made me feel welcome off the field,” Jordan said. “All I have to do is concentrate on the matches. Hopefully, if I get a go tomorrow, I can show what I can do.”

Jordan added that the Royal Challengers would go into the game with a lot of positivity. “We actually haven’t been able to have a practice session since I landed. Obviously a little bit of rain and stuff. The boys in the camp are quite positive at the moment,” Jordan said. “We have put everything that’s gone before this behind us and we are really looking forward to the challenge ahead, which we are trying to embrace. If we do come out winning, obviously it will be a great turnaround. Guys will be going into playoffs in great form, and who knows after that going into the back end of the tournament.”

Speaking on the significance of winning each game, Jordan said, “I have watched quite a few games.” “The way things are going right now for the team, that’s life. Every game has to be treated like a semi-final now and if we treat it like that, all the boys will give 150 percent. We can be tempted to look too far ahead, but first and foremost, we’ll have to deal with the game tomorrow.”
