Jason Roy picks the current best batsman among ‘Fav four’
The ‘Fab Four’ of the cricketing atmosphere is not a new topic to the fans to debate for. The legendary players like Virat Kohli, Steven Smith, Kane Williamson, and Joe Root are the four batsmen currently dominating the batting names. Although, they are from different nations with a variety of approach and distinct playing styles, some common characteristics bind them all and made them greatest in the modern cricket.
The most common characteristics among these players are the most vital role for the team as they come at highly crucial No. 3 or No. 4 batting positions. They appeared at the time of pushing or pulling and rise to the occasion and win matches for the teams.
Therefore, sometimes both fans and experts of the game often indulge in over one’s superiority over the others. In a recent interview with Anis Sajan, England batting maestro Jason Roy has revealed his preference on the best batsman of the modern era.The veteran batsman went with his compatriot and English Test skipper Jason Roy as for Roy, it was a natural choice.
“I have to say one of my good pals Joe Root for sure, he’s an absolute gun,” remarked Roy.
In his absence, Ben Stokes is leading the side as Root missed the first Test match of the post-pandemic era against West Indies as he was expecting the birth of his second child.
He said South African all-rounder Lance Klusener attracted him a lot due to his flamboyance and all-round skills as he was his hero of the game while growing up.
“I watched cricket but didn’t know who the players were. Lance Klusener attracted me because of his all-round skills and flamboyance. When I started playing professional cricketer, I played with and against a lot of them- Kevin Pietersen, Kumar Sangakkara, Hashim Amla, Ricky Ponting, Graeme Smith, Tilakaratne Dilshan to name a few. As a youngster, I played alongside them while being in Surrey,” stated Roy.
