Discover more about Jason Roy
Jason Roy begun his cricket journey from a young age, where he was a hugely successful schoolboy cricketer for Whitgift and made his Surrey debut at just 17-years-old, in 2008. It’s no wonder Roy’s talents were noticed by England Cricket, who used him as a sub later that summer against South Africa.
Roy secured Surrey’s first T20 hundred when he struck 101 off 57 balls against Kent at Beckenham. Later that summer he also achieved 76 from 65 balls against Leicestershire on Championship debut. This then led to England’s selectors giving him a place on the Performance Programme tour to India before the England’s Lions tour to Sri Lanka in early 2012.
In 2014, Roy made the leap from a tremendously talented but erratic young cricketer to a consistent match-winner. In the NatWest T20 Blast, he struck 677 runs at 48.35 apiece – the highest tally in the competition. After working hard on pacing his innings in four-day cricket, Roy also blossomed in Championship cricket in 2014, hitting 1078 runs, the highest at the club, at an average of 50-plus without reigning in his destructiveness: his strike rate was still 84. He also averaged 47.65 in the Championship in a promotion year in 2015, his strike rate even higher.
Under the leadership of Eoin Morgan, Roy made two ODI hundreds against Sri Lanka in England, the second of them – a career-best 162 from just 118 balls, the second highest ODI score made at the time by an England batsman coming in front of his adoring home crowd at The Oval.
In 2017, he proved his ability in his performance against India by hitting three consecutive fifties at top of the order! Although he was later dropped during the 2017 Champion’s trophy, he bounced back with back-to-back fifties against the West Indies then hammered the highest individual ODI score by an England batsman to make 180 against Australia MCG.
In April 2019, Roy was called up to join the England team for the ICC Cricket World Cup, hitting three fifties and one hundred in just 5 innings. During a game against Pakistan, Roy scored his 3,000th run in ODI cricket and secured 3 ODI scores over 150. Next stop 200? The England team reached the Semi-Finals against New Zealand and, after playing the deciding super over, was part of the winning ICC Cricket World Cup Champions squad.
In July 2019 Roy got named for the England squad making his very first test debut against Ireland in a one off game at Lord’s. During the match he scored 5 runs in the first innings and 72 of 78 in the second. Following this he got called up for The Ashes.
