ICC World Cup 2019: Jason Roy Likely To Play India Game, Reveals Eoin Morgan
Amidst the crisis, the England team likely to get the boost of Jason Roy for the clash against the Indian National Cricket Team. The skipper Eoin Morgan hinted that the opening batsman would be fine for the game against India, which would bring stability to the team.
Jason Roy pulled up his hamstring after chasing the ball over the covers during the match against Windies. The 28-year-old walked off and, soon, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) confirmed he needed further assessment after “feeling tightness”.
Roy had sustained a hamstring tear during the game against West Indies on June 14. But a second scan, carried out on Monday morning, showed the injury was much improved, boosting hopes he will be fit to play in the match against India on June 30.
Jason Roy is hopeful of being fit – Eoin Morgan
Despite no chance of him playing against Australia on Tuesday, he was able to bat in the nets on Monday morning – the first time he has been able to do so since the incident.
From now, he will be monitored on a daily basis with a view to him returning to the team for England’s final two group games. Speaking of the same, the skipper Eoin Morgan gave a much-needed update for the English fans.
“I think with four days of rehabilitation, he’s hopeful of being fit,” Morgan told Sky Sports. But if it’s a big risk, we’ll play it as it is.”
Roy’s replacement, James Vince, has struggled to get the team away to good starts and been dismissed for 26, 14 and, against Australia, for a duck of two deliveries. It was the worst possible start for England’s run chase.
As far as their world cup campaign is concerned, after losing the game against Sri Lanka and Australia, they stand at the possibility of being knocked out as well. A victory in one of the remaining two games would give them a chance while two wins will progress them to the next level.
