Following the third ODI against Sri Lanka at Old Trafford where he recorded his career-best bowling figures of 5/29, England pace bowler Chris Jordan has announced that he wants to continue letting “the ball and the bat do the bulk of talking” for him.

As of result of Jordan’s stellar performance with the ball, Sri Lanka were bowled out for 67, which is their third-lowest total in ODIs.

England went on to win the match by 10 wickets and take a 2-1 lead in the series.

“I don’t do too much talking – I try to let the ball and the bat do the bulk of talking for me,” Jordan said. “My team-mates around me can talk a bit if they like.”

Jordan also noted that he intends to continue using short-pitched deliveries to keep surprising batsmen and taking wickets.

“That’s something we spoke about, so I hope we can continue throughout the series,” he said. “I want to be able to hit teams hard and use the short ball wisely, because you are allowed two in an over.

“So with the extra man inside the circle, I’m sure if the guys can get it up there they will try their best to use both (each over).”
