Jason Roy ruled out of Australia clash
English opening batsman Jason Roy is ruled out of the game against Australia and he will continue to take healing for his injury.
The tournament favorites England are having a decent World Cup tournament so far. As a shock to everyone, they lost badly to Sri Lanka in their last games which have put them in a tough situation ahead of their next three games against big teams Australia, New Zealand, and India.
England will take on Australia on 25th June at Lords. Ahead of the clash, the hosts are stuck with a piece of bad news as their opening batsman Jason Roy will miss this game too as he is not fully recovered from the hamstring injury in his left leg.
Jason Roy hurt his left leg during the game against West Indies on June 14th. It was said that he will return to the playing XI in the game against Australia. On Monday, Roy returned to the nets for the first time since tearing his hamstring but is not fully fit despite a second scan showing the 28-year-old was making good progress in his recovery.
He had a scan at the Fortius Clinic in London on Monday morning and then came to Lord’s where the rest of the squad was training. He took to the nets, taking in a few throwdowns to test out his left leg. James Vince will continue at the top of the order. The Hampshire captain has not enjoyed the best of times, scoring 14 and 26.
