How to sort points clockwise or counterclockwise?

I'm using inpolygon function and it requires points to be sorted clockwise and sometimes counterclockwise, how I can do that about the mean point?!
I've attached the data, and here is a link for inpolygon function: https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/inpolygon.html

Can you compute the polar coordinates angle, around that mean? (Hint: use atan2. Don't forget to subtract off the mean FIRST.)
Can you now use sort? (Yes.) A clockwise sort just implies DECREASING order of the polar angle? An increasing sort would be a clockwise rotation.
