Jason Roy – One of England’s Transformers

Jason Roy’s name will always be in cricket folklore as it was his throw from deep midwicket that won England the 2019 World Cup final. In the greatest, most dramatic 50-over match in history, Roy’s flat throw to Jos Buttler was the culmination of a four-year period in which England’s limited-overs team went from being a global laughing stock to the best in the world.

Roy, who made his T20I debut against India a few months before the 2015 World Cup debacle, was central to the transformation. Under Eoin Morgan’s captaincy, England shed decades of timidity to adopt an aggressive approach based on big hitting, aggressive running, and wicket-taking bowling. Ben Stokes won the plaudits for his final heroics, but Roy’s contribution to the title win was no less significant.

For such a fearless, clean striker of the ball, his impact in the Indian T20 League has so far been limited. He got a small taste of it with the Gujarat franchise in 2017 and then played one blistering knock for Delhi the following year. He then returned only in 2021 for the Hyderabad team. Roy was bought by the new Gujarat team in the 2022 mega auction but pulled out of the tournament because of bubble fatigue. He joined the Kolkata Team in the 2023 season as a replacement for Shakib Al Hasan.

Jason Roy – Key Skills and Strengths

For years, England looked on with envy at openers like Sanath Jayasuriya and Virender Sehwag. Then came Jason Roy, dominating the bowlers in very much the same way, while also being consistent enough to average over 40 in the format. Though he learned most of his cricket after moving to England as a 10-year-old, the South Africa-born Roy plays cross-batted shots with the fluency associated with southern hemisphere batters. Apart from his fearless stroke play and lively fielding, his other great asset is the ability to build partnerships. England’s charge to World Cup glory was built on the foundation of his dynamic opening partnership with Jonny Bairstow.

Jason Roy’s Awards and Achievements

His brief stint in the Test team didn’t quite work out and his T20I record is average for someone who would be expected to thrive in the format, but in recent years, Roy has been one of the stars of the 50-overs game. His thrilling stroke play helped to change the England cricket team culture after the 2015 World Cup, and he was one of the key players in their incredible World Cup victory in 2019.

Here are some of Roy’s biggest achievements in international cricket:

  • Roy’s 180 against Australia at the MCG in 2018 is the highest individual ODI score by an England player.

  • Of those who have made more than 1000 ODI runs at a strike rate higher than 100, Roy has the highest average.

  • He contributed with a century and 4 half centuries in seven innings in England’s 2019 World Cup-winning campaign.

Jason Roy’s Indian T20 League Journey

Roy got limited opportunities with the now-disbanded Gujarat team during the 2017 season and played only 5 games with Delhi in 2018. But one of those matches was enough to show the Indian T20 League audiences his quality as he bashed 91* in an epic run chase against Mumbai, the defending champions.

Roy was drafted in by the Hyderabad team as a replacement for Mitchell Marsh for the UAE leg of the competition in 2021. Jason Roy is now part of the Kolkata Team for the 2023 Indian T20 League.
