Player Biography

Jordan, a Kent Academy graduate, made his Kent debut against Pakistan in a List A friendly in 2019, scoring 21. His competitive debut came against Hampshire in the same season in the County Championship. He scored 27 opening the batting in the first innings as the match was drawn.

In the 2020 Bob Willis Trophy, Cox scored 238* against Sussex and shared a 407-run partnership with Jack Leaning (220*). This broke Kent’s all time record partnership, and set up a dominant victory, as Kent won by an innings and 25-runs. Cox scored the highest maiden First Class century in the club’s history, and alongside Leaning, became the first Kent pair to score double hundreds in the same innings since 1937. Cox also became the first player born in the new millennium to score a First Class double hundred in England.

Cox represented England Under-19s at the 2019 Under-19 World Cup, and is another on the long line of Kent homegrown wicket keepers.
