Jason Roy IPL Career Profile & Stats - Rajasthan Royals (RR)


 Born in Durban, South Africa, young Jason Roy moved to England when he was 10 years old with his family. Growing up watching and idolising top order greats like Brian Lara and Ricky Ponting through his formative years, Roy has admirably rosen through the ranks in England’s domestic circuits to become one of the most established openers in the modern game.

Roy started out a child prodigy, playing his school cricket for Whitgit before making his T20 debut for Surrey at the age of 18 in 2008. 2014 was the year he truly emerged, scoring 677 runs at an average of 48.35 to catch the eye of the English selectors who rewarded him with a debut in an one off T20I against India.The easy on the eye opener who loves taking the game to the opposition bowlers became an integral part of England’s rebuilding process after the debacle they faced in the 2015 World Cup. The then English Skipper Eoin Morgan wanted to reimagine the way the English top order played their cricket and in Roy, they had the perfect exponent for the brand of cricket they wanted to play in limited overs cricket.

Roy came of his own in his natural role at the top of the order, this IPL with the Kolkata Knight Riders, where he churned out brilliant performances for his team.The Englishman will look to continue his good run with the bat for the Los Angeles Knight Riders as he expands his horizon of experience in T20 cricket by featuring in the Major League Cricket this year.
