Jordan looks to continue intensity

England

Fast bowler Chris Jordan is eager to capitalise on an impressive international debut earlier this year – and a solid campaign with the England Performance Programme this month – during the five-ODI series against Australia.

Fast bowler Chris Jordan is eager to capitalise on an impressive international debut earlier this year – and a solid campaign with the England Performance Programme this month – during the five-ODI series against Australia.

Jordan, who clinched teling figures of three for 51 against the same opposition at the Rose Bowl in Southampton in September, has been retained in a squad minus the services of the rested Graeme Swann, James Anderson and Kevin Pietersen.

"I'm very delighted to be honest, obviously having got that taste initially in the summer it would be nice to get another few games and hopefully I can get them in the upcoming series," Jordan told the England and Wales Cricket Board's official website.

"It would be nice to get involved in that battle and come out on the right end of it. To be honest I just want to continue with the intensity I'm putting into my practice and the thought that's going into my game is a lot more thorough now. I want to continue in that vein and, hopefully, I will become a better player for it."

The Aussies and English will meet for five ODIs and and three Twenty20 Internationals after their ongoing five-Test series, which the home side lead two-nil on the back of big triumphs in Brisbane and Adelaide.

Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Perth and Adelaide will hosts ODIs one, two, three, four and five respectively between 12 and 26 January. The T20Is will be played at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart, MCG and SCG between 29 January and 2 February.

"I've been out in Australia so far and I'm working quite hard on my game and it's nice to get that call-up which makes the trip that much better. It would be a great honour to play for England out here, especially seeing the way the Test matches are going and seeing the fight that Australia are putting up," added Jordan.
