Jordan to fire for England at 7/2

ESPNcricinfo staff

As England's Australian misery continued in Melbourne, Chris Jordan produced a fiery display with the ball and he is nicely priced at 7/2 to be England's top bowler in the second ODI in Brisbane on Friday.

Jordan produced pace and aggression that troubled the Australian openers and he could easily have had both dismissed. Eventually he got his rewards with a gem of a delivery that nipped back off the seam to clean bowl Shane Watson - a sign of what Jordan is capable of. Unscarred by the Ashes thrashing, Jordan is motivated and hungry.

In the Middle East, Sri Lanka have surprised everyone with their showing in the first two Tests against Pakistan and can complete their fine series with victory in the third Test in Sharjah. They have nullified the threat of Saeed Ajmal in particular and can prosper again at 12/5.
