The all-rounder left the Caribbean island for England as a teenager, and he returned in style with a man-of-the-match performance as England salvaged pride in the final game of the three-match Twenty20 series.
Jordan's four sixes in the final over helped the tourists post a competitive 165-6 which they defended thanks in part to the same player's 3-39.
Afterwards he said: "Some of my family and friends were watching me play international cricket for the first time.
"This was a special occasion. I was glad I could put in that performance both for England and my family. There was mum, dad, everyone - probably close to 15 people.
"The occasion and my family watching - and avoiding a 3-0 defeat as well - makes this one very special.
"It was a very enjoyable game, obviously, to play in the place where I grew up. To put in a performance like that for England, it's one I'll probably remember for a very long time."
