Jason Roy to miss next two games of Cricket World Cup 2019
England opening batsmann Jason Roy will miss England’s next two World Cup games. Roy had left the ground during the West Indies innings with what was believed to be hamstring tightness. He has returned to bat as England’s regular No.3, Joe Root partnering Jonny Bairstow at the top of the order and seeing England home with an unbeaten ton.
Jason Roy will be replaced by back-up opener James Vince against Afghanistan for Tuesday’s match at Old Trafford and at Headingley meeting with Sri Lanka on Friday. England captain Eoin Morgan himself may be fit for match against Afghanistan after suffering a back spasm in the same outing against West Indies.
Roy had already missed seven weeks of action in cricket after suffering a hamstring injury earlier this year. Jason Roy is currently 2nd best scorer with 215 in just 3 innings in Cricket World Cup behind Joe Root’s 279. England are 4th in the 10-team table, having won three and lost one of their first four games, they have lost to Pakistan. While their Tuesday’s opponents, Afghanistan are bottom with four defeats from four matches.
