In a recent development, English fast bowler Chris Jordan has been signed by Mumbai Indians as a replacement player for the remaining matches of IPL 2023. Jordan, who was unsold at the base price of INR 2 crore during the auction held in December 2022, has previous experience playing in the IPL with Royal Challengers Bangalore, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Punjab Kings, and Chennai Super Kings.

The 34-year-old has picked up 27 wickets in 28 IPL innings at an average of 30.85 and an economy of 9.32. His last IPL appearance was in 2022 for Chennai Super Kings, where he managed to pick up two wickets in four outings.

Mumbai Indians have been struggling with their international fast bowlers this season, with Jasprit Bumrah unavailable, Jhye Richardson ruled out, and Jofra Archer recently returning from Belgium after meeting an elbow specialist. While Riley Meredith replaced Richardson, it is yet unknown who Jordan has replaced in the Mumbai camp.

Jordan has recently played T20 cricket with the Gulf Giants at the ILT20 tournament in February, where he finished as the leading wicket-taker with 20 wickets in ten innings, averaging 13.80. He also played three T20Is against Bangladesh last month.

Archer is expected to make his IPL 2023 debut for Mumbai on Sunday evening against Rajasthan Royals, with the team hoping to move up from their current ninth position on the IPL points table.
