Jason Roy ruled out of ENGvPAK T20Is due to side strain


Manchester: England opener Jason Roy will miss the three-match T20I series against Pakistan after sustaining a left side strain.

The hard-hitting batsman sustained the injury this week in the team’s preparation at Old Trafford and had a scan on Wednesday.

“The 30-year-old will remain with the England set-up and will commence his rehabilitation program looking ahead to the Australia white-ball series, which starts next month at The Ageas Bowl,” the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said in a statement.

It must be noted that England won the Test series 1-0. Both the teams will now take part in T20I series, starting from Friday, August 28th.
