Jason Roy who plies his trade for England national cricket team across formats, and for Surrey County Cricket Club in domestic cricket was one of the players who went unsold in the mini IPL auction in Chennai. England opener is a terrific hitter of the cricket ball. He has a phenomenal strike-rate as far as the shortest format is concerned.
He played 38 games where he scored 890 runs including 5 fifties at a staggering strike-rate of 144. Roy brought his personal best score of 78 against New Zealand in the first semi-final clash of World T20 2016. His innings was laced with 11 boundaries and 2 sixes. Roy was named the man of the match for his match-winning knock.
The South-African-born English cricketer hasn’t really made an impact in the Indian Premier League. Delhi Capitals released Jason Roy ahead of IPL 2021 auction. Overall, he played just 8 games in the cash-rich league where he scored 179 runs including his 91* against Mumbai Indians. A player like Roy can be surely picked by a franchise later on in the tournament.
