Jordan Clark (born 14 October 1990) is an English cricketer. Clark is a right-handed batsman who bowls right-arm medium pace and who occasionally fields as a wicket-keeper. He was born in Whitehaven, Cumbria and was educated at Sedbergh School.[1]

Clark made his debut for Cumberland in the 2007 Minor Counties Championship against Norfolk. The following season he played two further matches in that competition, against Buckinghamshire and Norfolk again.[2] Clark joined Lancashire's Academy in 2008;[3] after two years in the Academy, he was given a scholarship with Lancashire in January 2010.[4] Having represented the Lancashire Second XI in since 2008,[5] Clark made his debut for Lancashire in Lancashire's last List A match in the 2010 Clydesdale Bank 40 against Worcestershire.[6][7] He scored 32 runs before being dismissed by Jack Shantry.[8] In the winter of 2010/11 Clark suffered a stress fracture to the back.[1]

At the start of the 2011 season, Clark's scholarship was renewed[9] and, in June, he made his Twenty20 debut. He scored 19 runs from 11 balls as Lancashire tied with Derbyshire.[10] In October Clark signed his first full-time professional contract with Lancashire.[11]

On 24 April 2013 in a second XI game for Lancashire against Yorkshire at North Marine Road Ground, Scarborough, he became only the fifth player to hit six sixes off an over in a professional game, scoring the runs against left-arm spinner Gurman Randhawa.[12]

On 22 July 2018, Clark removed England captain Joe Root, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, and England batsman Jonny Bairstow in consecutive balls to secure a hat-trick in the County Championship roses match against Yorkshire County Cricket Club.[13] Clark took 5-58 in this innings, his maiden first-class 5 wicket haul.

In September 2018, he was named in the Hobart Hurricanes' squad for the 2018 Abu Dhabi T20 Trophy.[14]
