JORDAN Thompson is hoping a productive personal summer will be rewarded with a busy winter, as the Yorkshire all-rounder eyes some overseas cricket.

Thompson, 24, is the county’s leading Championship wicket-taker with 43 scalps, including a season’s best 5-52 in the second innings of the defeat to Warwickshire at Emerald Headingley earlier this week.

He was also the county’s joint-leading Vitality Blast wicket-taker with 14, alongside New Zealand overseas quick Lockie Ferguson, and added 215 runs with two half-centuries.

Though he only played three times for the Northern Superchargers in the Hundred in late July and through August, his workload has been significant.

But, even with 28 appearances across all formats to his name - that potentially swelling to 30 over the next fortnight, he insists he is not feeling the pinch physically.

“The Hundred revitalised me a bit because I didn’t really bowl too much,” he said.

“I bowled a lot with the red ball in training towards the end of the tournament to get ready for the Champo stuff.

“I like to bowl overs. Bowling overs keeps me fit. When I have a couple of weeks off, it probably shows out there that I lose rhythm. When I’m in my flow, I like to keep bowling.

“My body’s held up through the season, and I feel fine. I feel good.”

It is expected that the England Lions will head to Australia this winter to shadow the full Ashes tour. It would be no surprise to see Thompson selected.

“That would be great,” he said. “There’s noise around the camp, moving into the winter, as to whether or not that tour would happen. I’m not sure.

“Overseas tournaments, possibly. I would like to get something there.

“If it wasn’t a Lions tour, there would hopefully be a franchise tournament or two.

“Anything to get away from the cold weather and mornings in the East Stand. No, seriously, it would be nice to do something, to get away and play.

“There’s been a few messages floating around. Nothing directly to me, but a few to the club on who is potentially being watched (by overseas T20 teams).

“If I get picked, I get picked.”
