IPL 2016: Chris Jordan's inclusion could be a blessing in disguise for Royal Challengers Bangalore

New Delhi: While Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are a batting powerhouse in the Indian Premier League, the inclusion of English speedster Chris Jordan should come as a huge boost for the Virat Kohli-led side.

Jordan has been roped in as a replacement for injured Mitchell Starc. Ahead of the tournament, the Australian's injury had come as a huge blow for RCB, considering they don't boast of a strong bowling line-up.

Meanwhile, Jordan impressed everybody with his accurate yorkers in the recently concluded ICC World Twenty20 and even in the final against West Indies, he gave his team a real chance of winning their second title by conceding just 8 runs in the penultimate over, hence giving Ben Stokes healthy 19 runs to defend in the final over.

The 27-year-old took to Twitter to share his excitement ahead of the first stint in the cash-rich tournament.

While RCB have the services of Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and Shane Watson in the batting department, Jordan will add a lot of strength to their depleted bowling line-up. Watson and Jordan can together bowl eight crucial overs for the franchise.
