Hamstring injuries have been a consistent wellspring of frustration for Roy for some times, yet England will be given time to allow the dangerous opener to rediscover his fitness. Jason Roy had been a constant performer for England in the recent times and England will surely want him to comeback in the team as soon as possible.

“I’m targeting Australia however we’ll perceive how this week goes. Everything relies upon this week. If this week goes to plan maybe, at that point possibly, however who knows? There’s a great deal of grey area with hamstrings shockingly,” the 28-year old English opener said.

Earlier, Jason Roy had been ruled out of the team’s two important matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 after news of his hamstring tear was confirmed by the England management few days ago. So, eventually Roy would not be in the frame as he would be missing games against Afghanistan and Sri Lanka.

Roy got injured while he was chasing the ball in the covers during West Indies’ innings at The Rose Bowl on Friday. This is the second time that Roy suffered an injury in the ongoing season. However, Roy had been in superb form in the ongoing ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019. He’d played the tournament’s highest individual innings of 153 against Bangladesh. Also he’s the England’s second highest run-scorer in the tournament with 215 runs in 3 innings with the average of 71.66
