England opener Jason Roy left the field as a retired Hart after batting in his last match in the Super Twelve against South Africa. From then on, the team was worried about him. In the end, fear turned into reality. Roy was knocked out of the World Cup before the start of the semifinals.
Batting early in the match in Sharjah on Saturday, South Africa gave England a 190-run target based on an unbeaten 94-run innings by Rossi van der Dussen. Roy made a good start for the team by batting in reply. He played 15 balls and scored 20 runs. After that he did not bat anymore.
The England Cricket Board (ECB) issued a statement on Jason Roy on Monday. And that confirmed Roy’s exit from the World Cup. The ECB said in an emotional message, ‘Jason Roy, we are all sorry for you. We will continue to play with the positive spirit that you have created. If anyone can turn around, it’s you. ‘
Expressing frustration at being knocked out of the World Cup, Roy said, ‘I was knocked out of the World Cup. It’s hard to accept. I will stay with the team and support the boys. I hope we will win the title.
Roy has scored 123 runs in 5 matches in this year’s T20 World Cup. Vince, a replacement for the right-handed opener, has played 12 T20s for England so far. He also has a century in ODIs. Vince was already with the team as a reserve cricketer. Earlier, Timel Mills dropped out of the World Cup due to a thigh injury. Rich Topley has been named in the World Cup squad as a replacement for the left-arm pacer.
