Jason Roy – One of England’s Transformers

Whatever he goes on to do with the rest of his life, Jason Roy knows that his place in cricket history is assured. In the greatest, most dramatic 50-over match in history, which also happened to be the 2019 World Cup final, it was his throw from deep midwicket that won England the trophy on the basis of more boundaries hit – after the 50-over game and both the Super Overs had been tied. That one 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 and with Trevor Bayliss as coach, England shed decades of timidity to adopt an aggressive approach based on big hitting, aggressive running, and wicket-taking bowling.

By the time the 2019 World Cup began, Roy already had 8 ODI centuries to his name. And though he made only 1 in the competition, his quick-fire half centuries against India, New Zealand and Australia (in the semi-final) played a huge part in reviving an English campaign that appeared to be falling flat again. 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, as the Hyderabad team sought a replacement for Mitchell Marsh.

With more global limited-overs events in the subcontinent looming over the next couple of years, Roy will undoubtedly return to fine-tune his game in the Indian T20 League. And next time, he may have more than a cameo role to play, just as he did with England when they finally scaled the ODI peak. Roy’s aggressive batting earned him a spot on the England team for the 2021 T20 World Cup.

Jason Roy – Key Skills and Strengths

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.

Jason Roy’s Awards and Achievements

Domestic cricket in England is a huge source of talent when it comes to playing for the England cricket team. That is why Livingstone had to wait for sometime to see his talents being recognized. However, he has since established himself as a first-team regular for England in the T20 format of the game and his contributions have been recognized in more than one way.

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.

Drafted in by the Hyderabad team as a replacement for Mitchell Marsh for the UAE leg of the competition in 2021, Roy now has a chance to influence franchise decision makers before the next auction.
