Jordan looking to learn from Wasim
It is every paceman’s dream to take something from one of the all-time greats, Wasim Akram. Karachi Kings pacer Chris Jordan too has the same dream, as he said his goal is to learn from his bowling mentor Akram.
“I am really enjoying working with Wasim Akram. It’s my goal and it would be great if I even pick one thing from him,” said the English pacer in a press conference following his team’s five-wicket loss to Quetta Gladiators on Sunday.
While Jordan took one wicket against Gladiators, he was a bit expensive, giving away 34 runs in his four overs. However, batting was what let them down, believes the 31-year-old, adding that they were about ten runs short.
“Had we scored 160 or 170 it would have been interesting. Today (Sunday, February 23) the things did not go our way. More focus and execution would be needed.”
Jordan was also quite impressed with the crowd of Karachi, as he said: “The Karachi crowd is very knowledgable. They understand the flow of the game and they think us their own team and so it was exciting to play in front of a jam-packed stadium.”
But the pacer did not want to specifically reveal the standard of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), as when he was asked about it, he termed it “unique”.
“Every League has its own quality and the PSL is unique,” he said.
