Jordan Silk represents Tasmania after being recruited from his home state of New South Wales.

At just 16 years of age Jordan became the youngest player  to score a century on debut in Sydney First Grade Cricket history.

As a 17 year old, Jordan was given the honour of being 12th man for the Australian side in the 4th Test match against Pakistan at the SCG in 2010-11 after the official 12th man Clint McKay returned to Victoria to play for his state. He again made quite a name for himself in the field as with an impressive performance as 12th man for Australia in the Hobart Test between Australia and Sri Lanka in December 2012.

Jordan forced his way into the Tasmanian side through sheer weight of runs, with the tall opening-batmen having scored 876 runs at an average of 73 for his club side North Hobart in the 2012-13 season. Jordan started his First Class career with a bang. He scored a total of 347 runs in three matches at an average of 57.83 and a highest score of 127. He scored two centuries and one fifty in his three matches, including a 108 in the Bupa Sheffield Shield Final. He also had a blistering start to the Ryobi Cup, scoring 2 half-centuries in his first 3 matches.


Jordan was rewarded for his impressive end to the 2012-13 Bupa Sheffield Shield season with a place in the Australia A squad for the 2013 VB Tour of the British Isles.


Jordan started the 2013-14 in strong fashion compiling 421 runs at and average of 36 for the Tasmanian Tigers in the Sheffield Shield before the Christmas break. He had also being playing for the Sydney Sixers in the KFC BBL competition until he was injured in the New Year which kept him out most of teh back half of the season. He was awarded the prestigeous Bradman Young Cricketer Of The Year Award at the Allan Border Medal. He is one of the most exciting young prospects in Australian Cricket.


Jordan capped off an amazing BBL with the Sydney Sixers finishing the tournament as the 4th leading run-scorer with 272 runs and the best average of 54.4. This was also the highest aggregate of runs ever scored by a number 5 batsmen in the history of the competition. The Sixers lost the Final to the Perth Scorchers.
