All-rounder Jordan Clark admits his style of play is suited to T20 cricket, with the Cumbrian set to start his first Vitality Blast campaign with Surrey.

Fresh from scoring a second-innings 54 for Surrey in their 167-run County Championship Division One win against Nottinghamshire, the former Cleator Cricket Club man seems to have found some form.

The 28-year-old, who joined Surrey from Lancashire on a three-year contract last August, will hope to be involved when Surrey begin their 2019 Vitality Blast campaign at Essex this evening (7pm start), having been named in their 13-man squad.

Clark was part of the Lancashire squad which won the NatWest T20 Blast in 2015, although the Whitehaven-born man didn’t feature in the final.

“If selected, I’ll, obviously, have a chat to the captain about where he sees me fitting into the team,” Clark told Surrey’s website when asked where he sees himself fitting into the side.

“It’s something I enjoy and I think it comes quite naturally to swing as hard as I can to hit the ball a fair distance, and try to bowl quickly with a few variations.

“It would nice to contribute to a few team-winning performances and I’m looking forward to it.”

Jordan’s brother, Graham, and fellow Cumbrian Liam Trevaskis will want to feature when Durham host Northamptonshire (6.30pm start) with both in their 13-strong squad for their opening Vitality Blast games against Northants and Lancashire on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Paul Nixon’s Leicestershire start at home to Lancashire tonight, with Liam Livingstone missing out through injury but former Cumberland bowler Richard Gleeson is in the Red Rose squad.
