England bowler Chris Jordan wants to force his way into the Test side after impressing in the first one-day international against Sri Lanka.

England bowler Chris Jordan is eyeing a place in the Test side this summer following a break-out performance in the first one-day international against Sri Lanka.

The 25-year-old earned the man of the match award as he scored 38 runs off 16 balls and took three wickets for 25 runs in Alastair Cook's side's 81-run victory at The Oval on Thursday.

Jordan told reporters: "I am a very ambitious player and do want bigger and better things.

"There are probably a couple of places up for grabs at the minute. I do see myself as taking on one of those places.

"If I put in some good one-day performances and get a Test call-up, then I'll be more than grateful and I'll try to keep building on that."

Jordan has played in nine ODIs and seven Twenty20 matches for the Three Lions.
