Jordan was not represented by any team in the 2022 IPL Auction. He wasn’t purchased in the auction despite having a starting price of Rs 2 crores. But after researching his prior associations with Royal Challengers Bangalore, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Punjab Kings, and Chennai Super Kings, MI has added him to the side. In 28 IPL innings, the English bowler has collected 27 wickets. His economy is 9.32, and his average is 30.85.

Jordan played for the Chennai Super Kings during the 2022 IPL season, appearing in just four games while claiming two wickets.

Riley Meredith took Richardson’s spot, although Jofra recently returned from Belgium after visiting an elbow surgeon, and he has only participated in two games so far. Who Jordan has replaced in the Mumbai camp is not yet known.

Jordan recently participated in an International League T20 (ILT20) match for Gulf Giants, who won the season’s championship in February. In the competition, he had taken the most wickets. Jordan had an average of 13.80 and collected 20 wickets in 10 innings.
