We have had heard the phrase: ‘Roy, Oh Boy’ during the recently Big Bash League (BPL) when England batsman Jason Roy pulled a screamer while fielding at the point region, as he is no different commodity with the bat owing to the brute force on his day.
In a similar way, while playing for the established Country Club Surrey against Sussex, the 27-year Durban-born batsman walloped the white ball onto the stadium’s roof on Sunday, in a NatWest Twenty20 Blast game at the Oval.
The massive six has left former England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff in splits, who was further enjoying the pyrotechnics of Australian batsman Finch in the commentary box.
On the bowling of David Wiese, the right-handed Roy came down the ground and whacked the white-ball towards on-side for a massive six.’
After being dropped from the England side due to a poor run of form earlier, Roy has entertained the crowd by smashing four sixes in his knock, as one of the massive sixes measured the long distance over Lock Laker stand in Kennington.
Roy, who is known for his explosive batting, smashed fifty from 33 deliveries.
Interestingly, Finch smashed a brilliant century which further saw Wiese on the Kolpak deal signed by Sussex conceding 60 runs in his quota of four overs.
The 32-year-old Rooderpoort-born Wiese give away 30 runs in his fourth over following four consecutive sixes from Aaron Finch, who smashed 114 off 64 deliveries.
In response of Surrey’s 193, Sussex fell 17 short of the win as the side could post 176 for seven in 20 allotted overs.
It’s pertinent to mention Roy has migrated to the United Kingdom alongside his family when his age was around ten.
In November Roy, was inducted into the BPL franchise Sydney Sixers for the sixth edition, before playing for Sydney Thunder in BBL 05.
Having the original role to play as a middle-order batsman, Roy has featured in 46 One-day Internationals and 22 Twenty20 Internationals for England, after bursting into the international scene in 2015.
Watch here Jason Roy’s monster six as Andrew Flintoff was stunned by his shot:
