Jordan Silk represents Tasmania after being recruited from his home state of NSW.
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 in his three matches, including a 108 in the Sheffield Shield final. He also had a blistering start to the One Day Cup, scoring two half-centuries in his first 3 matches.
Jordan was rewarded for his impressive end to the 2012-13 Sheffield Shield season with a place in the Australia A squad for the 2013 Tour of the British Isles.
Jordan was picked up by the Sydney Sixers in the BBL in 2013. He was awarded the prestigious Bradman Young Cricketer Of The Year Award at the Allan Border Medal in 2014.
Jordan then 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. A brilliant fieldsman, he also took the catch of the Tournament in 2014. The Sixers lost the Final to the Perth Scorchers.
In December 2017, he scored 104 for Tasmania v NSW to record his fifth first class century. He then showed his class to score 76 & 74 in the Sheffield Shield final to take his season average to 41.
Jordan continued his good form in the 2018-19 Shield season, facing more balls than any other player in the competition. He recorded his 6th First Class century v South Australia, following up on his 90 in the previous match v Victoria.
Jordan had several stints as captain of Tasmania in 2019-20.
Jordan was an integral member of the victorious Sydney Sixers BBL9 & BBL10 teams playing several crucial innings throughout BBL10.
Jordan was moved to the middle order of the Tasmanian team for the 2021-22 season and he was the 8th highest run scorer with 514 at the impressive average of 57.11, including his 8th first class century v QLD, plus a captain's match winning innings of 83 not out v WA in November.
Jordan was equally impressive in the Marsh Cup One Day competition, scoring 207 @ and average of 69 to take out Tasmania's One Day Player of the Year Award.
At Cricket Tasmania's Annual Awards night in April, 2022, Jordan was awarded the prestigious Ricky Ponting Medal, tied on 134 points with Peter Siddle.
Jordan was been appointed captain of Tasmania for the 2022-23 season, a well-deserved honour. He scored a career best 154 not out v Victoria in the Sheffield Shield of only 161 balls, to record his 9th First Class century.
He has also started well in BBL11 and one of the leading run scorers for the Sydney Sixers.
