Jordan Morris is a highly rated young talent from Pretoria. Jordan was a selected for the Northerns U13 side as a batsman and finished the national u13 week as the 2nd highest run scorer. Having been schooled at the renowned Pretoria Boys High School, Jordan was a standout for the school and was quickly brought in to the Pretoria University Cricket system. TUKS, as it does, produced yet another high quality cricket with an all-round game capable of taking him to the professional level. An attacking right-handed middle order batsman, he would leave TUKS as a genuine all-rounder, capable of opening the bowling and a brutal force in the middle order. None of this should surprise as being a seam-bowling all-rounder runs in the family, Jordan is the first cousin of South African & IPL star, Chris Morris.

Whilst at TUKS he was a standout with the ball for them in his last 2 summers, with a combined 60 wickets @ 16.31. Batting opportunities were limited as the TUKS side continues to produce a 1st XI that could roll many First Class sides around the country.

With an opportunity to further his career, he moved to the North West Province on the promise of an opportunity to show his wares. Rewarded quickly with a full contract, the Dragons coaching staff had seen enough in the 6 games he played to warrant offering a full time role with the province. His 50 (55) on First Class debut backed up by match-winning 45 (62) in a one-dayer batting with the tail showed maturity beyond his age and showed a glimpse of what is to come for Jordan.

Seeking his first season in the UK in 2021, Jordan will be a popular pick up for any UK club seeking a genuine seam-bowling all-rounder for next summer and will bring a whole heap of talent with him in the process.
