Jason Roy Complete Bio & Career

Roy was born in South Africa but came to England when he was just 10 years old and has been playing cricket ever since. He was a fully committed cricketer from his school days and was successful as well. He made his first-class debut at the age of 17 when he was roped in by Surrey in the T-20 Cup in the year 2008. It was his fielding that was noticed and was used by England as a substitute fielder when South Africa toured England in 2009.
After their miserable show in the 2015 World Cup, Jason Roy was drafted into the England's team and the stroke player Roy responded with consistently giving a good start to his team. Though he scored a hundred against Pakistan just before the World Cup but it was after the World Cup when England changed their approach and Roy responded to his captain's with some great knocks. He scored an adventurous hundred against Sri Lanka by scoring 162 which is the highest score by an English Batsmen in ODI cricket.
His form dipped in 2017 and was unable to repeat the heroics he did in 2016. With the swagger that he possesses, he put behind this time and bounced back strongly in coming seasons. He became the most sought after openers for England since 2018 and more often than not provided with the good start. He along with Johnny Barristow has formed a formiddable opening pair and will be forece to reckon with in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
In IPL, he has played for Gujarat Lions and Delhi Capitals in the past. He though haven't had a great outing at the IPL and was released by his franchise Delhi Capitals for the 2019 season.
