LONDON: Batsman Jason Roy has crashed out of the next two World Cup matches after being injured during the match against the West Indies. Roy had a muscle strain against the Caribbean team.
The news is no less than a setback for England. That means Roy will no longer be seen in the matches against Afghanistan and Sri Lanka. England will not be able to play in the next two World Cup matches. After Roy's departure, James Vince is set to be selected in the last-11. In addition, Roy will be constantly monitored by team management to play in next week's crucial match against Australia at Lord's and his injury will continue to be checked so that he is fit for the match against Australia.
At the same time, Roy had a muscle strain while running behind the ball during fielding. An MRI on Saturday revealed that he had a left hamstring injury. Even before the World Cup, Roy had stayed away from cricket due to injury. Roy's exit is a big setback for England. Roy was making a brilliant opening for England. In the World Cup, Roy made 153 runs in 121 balls against Bangladesh. With Roy's injury, James Vince will be given a chance to team up with Jonny Bairstow for the opening.
