Stewart advocates Roy’s Test debut in Ashes

Stewart advocates Roy’s Test debut in Ashes

England’s opening batsman Jason Roy pummels bowlers for fun. The belligerent batter is one of those cricketers who can strike fear in the hearts of rivals. Even in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament, Roy continued his smashing form to score over 400 runs at an awe-inspiring strike rate.

All this has moved former England skipper Alec Stewart to demand a Test debut for Roy during the forthcoming Ashes series. The 56-year old opined that as England aims to reclaim the coveted urn from Australia, having a player of Roy’s caliber can shake the confidence of Australia as he is a game changer. Discussing Roy’s aggressive approach, Stewart added that what makes the 28-year old so special is his ability to play at a brisk pace while keeping his head cool and not going for a rash stroke.

“You hate singling out one player that can make such a big difference in any sport, but it’s so obvious with Jason Roy in the team. He can put fear into the opposition straight away and he did it in a mature way. He understands his own game,” said by the veteran of 133 Tests and 170 ODIs as he backed Roy to portray his batting class in Ashes.
