Chris Jordan hoping to claim World Cup spot

HOPEFUL: Chris Jordan (PA)

ENGLAND STAR Chris Jordan is hoping his improved consistency during the current Sri Lanka tour will secure him at place in the next year’s World Cup squad.

After breaking into the national team over a year ago, the 26-year-old has struggled to maintain “high standards” he expects from himself.

He said: “I think it's been a little bit up and down.

“At times I have not been as consistent as I would like.

“But after the four games especially, I'm happy I've been able to back up one performance with another one and then another. I am pretty happy with that progress.”

England selectors are set to pick a 16-man squad this week before it is cut to 15 for the World Cup, which takes place between February and March in Australia and New Zealand.

Jordan, who has impressed with eight wickets in four games against Sri Lanka, added: “All I can do is keep putting in the hard work in the nets and take any opportunity I get in the games - I have to leave the rest up to the selectors but I think I have steadily improved.

“I've been working quite hard on my accuracy and consistency and also to keep my pace up. I think I've shown glimpses in games here. I'm happy with the improvement I've made.”
