English opening batsman Jason Roy has been exceptional for the limited overs sides over the last couple of years as he has played a major role in the evolution of England at the international arena, making them a top-class side.
The opener has had a decent run in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as he has scored 341 runs in 6 innings at an average of 68, helping England get those brisk starts with the bat.
Head coach Trevor Bayliss has hinted towards a possible Ashes callup for Roy as he said the right-hander is a definite option for the Test side as he is someone who could provide the team with solid starts especially after the retirement of Alastair Cook.
“I think so, whether at the top of the order or at three. It is no secret that in test cricket we are looking for a solid combination at the top of the order since (Alastair) Cook retired last year. Roy’s had success at international cricket and that goes a long way to being able to handle the pressure. It’s a definite option we’ve been talking about around the selection table for the last 12 months or so,” he said.
