The Knights will have a new international import to boost their ranks. Barbados born, English international Chris Jordan will join the Knights from round 3 of the Burger King Super Smash. The right-arm fast bowler debuted for England in 2013 in the final ODI of the five match series against Australia in 2013, and has since featured in 8 Tests, 31 ODI's and 26 T20I's. The 29 year old has also made appearances in 2016 for the Adelaide Strikers (BB 3/24) in the Big Bash League and the Royal Challengers and Sunrisers Hyderabad (BB 4/11) in the IPL.
Known to be an effective death bowler, CEO of Northern Districts Cricket Ben MacCormack is thrilled to have the import join the Knights for the Burger King Super Smash. "Watching Chris Jordan perform in the other leagues, we know how entertaining he can be and we are really excited to have him representing us - he will be great for the fans and is a fantastic addition to our bowling line-up."
