Lancashire, Surrey, Qalandars
Jordan Clark grabbed headlines in April 2013 when he became England’s first professional cricketer to smash six sixes in an over. He was playing for Lancashire’s second XI and Yorkshire’s Gurman Randhawa had to face his wrath. Born in Cumbria, Clark is a big hitter and a more-than-decent seam bowler. Clark showcased his skills with the ball in a T20 Blast quarterfinal encounter in 2014. When Glamorgan were cruising towards a win in a run-chase, the right-arm seamer changed the complexion of the game in an over with a triple-wicket maiden. He ended up with figures reading 4/22, which fetched him the Man of the Match Award and a spot in the semifinal for his side. An academy member since 2008, Clark made his one-day and Twenty20 debuts for Lancashire in 2010 and 2011 respectively. A regular member in the shorter formats, he had to wait till 2015 to make an appearance in the first-class arena. In his debut season, Clark scored 419 runs in 12 Championship matches as a middle-order batsman and scalped 19 wickets. He was an integral member of the Lancashire set-up that won the T20 Blast in 2015. In the 2016 Championships, he was involved in a historic 107-run stand with Kyle Jarvis for the tenth wicket against Yorkshire. Clark recorded his maiden first-class century against Surrey in 2017 at the Oval. He fittingly got to the landmark with a pull shot over mid-wicket for six. Clark continues to be a regular member in Lancashire’s squad across all formats.
