England pace bowler Chris Jordan has admitted that he is eager to play in the third Test against India in Southampton as he wants to have a major impact.

Jordan wants to cement a permanent spot for himself on the Test roster and help England even up the series after India took a 1-0 lead following their 95-run victory at Lord’s.

“The squad were always going to come into play because you’re playing five test matches in six weeks and the guys are bowling a lot of overs as you saw,” Jordan said. “They had quite a flat pitch at Trent Bridge and then followed up by going straight into the field at Lord’s and that’s never easy on the body, but the guys are recovering well and looking after their bodies as good as possible so we just have to see how it goes.

“All the bowlers are bowling as best as they can be and the guys are doing well so you never know what the selectors have in mind, but as I said if I get the nod then I hope to make an impact.

“If I do get the nod then I’ll be hoping to come in as I did this game and smash my areas [to] hopefully be in a position to affect the game, but that’s a little way off so we will see how we rock up on Sunday.”
