Chris Jordan is an exiting cricketer and a valuable all-rounder. He’s been struggling with the form and was out from the squad as well. But selectors have showed faith in the ability of Jordan and believes that he can be the game changer for host team.

“Chris Jordan, a regular in IT20 squads over the past few years, has continued to develop as a cricketer – as we saw in the IT20s in the West Indies. He fully deserves his return to the ODI squad. In line with ICC regulations, we have to name a preliminary squad of 15 for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup before April 23. However, all 17 players named in the Royal London ODIs against Pakistan can stake a claim to be in the final 15-man squad, finalised at the end of that series,” Smith added.
