Harry Brook’s injury allows Jason Roy to potentially be cut from England’s World Cup 2023 Squad

Harry Brook’s injury allows Jason Roy to potentially be cut from England’s Cricket World Cup Squad. Jason Roy, who was injured during England’s one-day series against New Zealand and missed the entire series, may not make the Cricket World Cup roster.

After experiencing a back spasm prior to last Friday’s opening game in Cardiff, the 33-year-old was forced to miss the first two matches. After having another before the third game at The Oval on Wednesday, he was declared unfit to play in the series finale at Lord’s on Friday.

Roy, a key member of the 2019 World Cup-winning side, may now participate in the three-match series against Ireland, according to England captain Jos Buttler, who said: “Yes, I suppose so. Clearly, the Ireland team has been chosen. However, there are still a few days left if we want to make any adjustments or reveal somebody.

I am aware, though, it is not a guarantee, and Roy is only likely to start against Ireland if England names him among the final 15 players for the World Cup early next week.

The main issue with Roy playing against Ireland is that the series doesn’t end until the day before England leaves for the competition in India. This indicates that even if selected, Roy would probably just play the opening game at Headingley next Wednesday.

Regarding Roy, Buttler continued, “Obviously, he is eager to play and be in shape. Although he moves quite well, he is not yet ready to play a cricket match. Although it’s frustrating, that’s where we are right now.

Roy obviously wants to play and be in shape, Buttler continued. Despite his excellent movement, he is not quite ready to play a cricket match. Although frustrating, that is the situation we are in right now.

The excellent play of Dawid Malan, who recorded scores of 54, 96, and 127 in his previous three games, has not helped Roy’s chances.

Malan now appears to be a lock to start for England against New Zealand in their opening World Cup match on October 5 in Ahmedabad.

The Surrey batter will also suffer from the punishing schedule in India, which will see England play nine group games in nine different cities over the course of six weeks.
