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 lead 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, the second highest ODI score made at the time by an England batsman coming in front of his adoring home crowd at The Oval.
