Here’s Why Jason Roy Cried While Batting Against South Africa

Last updated:

The talented England opener Jason Roy was seen bursting into tears during the England vs South Africa’s T20 World Cup fixture last night.

The Eoin Morgan-led England cricket team finally sealed their spot in the semi-finals of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021, however, during the process England lost two things — their unbeaten record and opener Jason Roy. The talented England opener was retired hurt after getting injured during a 10-run defeat to South Africa in Sharjah.

The unfortunate incident took place while completing a single, Roy was running from the non-striker’s end Roy pulled up with a calf strain and had already crossed about three-fourth of the pitch to the striker’s end before Roy pulled up with a calf strain.

Post that, Roy was emotional as he had to help his team win the game, but straightaway fell on the ground with what seems like a calf or a hamstring injury.

His partner on-field Jos Buttler looked worried and a couple of more Proteas players came to check up on Jason Roy as the England physio also came to check up on him. Jason was seen putting his gloves over his eyesw. He was in tears, probably because of his World Cup campaign in uncertainty right before the semi-final. Roy had to then limp off the field with the support of the staff.

It is a major blow for the England cricket team. So far, in the tournament, Jason Roy has scored 123 runs in 5 matches and has given many quickfire starts to England alongside Buttler
