Jason Roy Refuse to Play Against Ireland After Dropped

England Cricketer Jason Roy Refuse to Play Against Ireland After Dropped in World Cup 2023 Squad: Jason Roy’s international career has come to an end as England decided to send Harry Brook rather than the opener to the Cricket World Cup in India.

The right-handed batter, who played a key role in helping England win the ODI World Cup in 2019, seems to be in line to compete in the next event after being chosen to the preliminary roster. To make place for Harry Brook, he was cruelly cut off the World Cup roster.

According to rumors, Brook may join the team in lieu of Dawid Malan. However, England selectors and the team management opted to withdraw the opening batsman last week due to Malan’s strong performance in the ODI series against New Zealand and Jason Roy’s absence from the series due to a back spasm.

Jason Roy had the chance to respond appropriately by playing well against Ireland, but the batsman decided not to participate in the series. For the remainder of the series, he has been replaced by Tom Kohler-Cadmore, an unproven batsman from Somerset.

Earlier, England’s national selector Luke Wright had announced that Jason Roy was given “the option of being involved” against Ireland. He also stated that the opener’s decision would not affect his status as a “batting reserve at the top of the order” for the World Cup.

“He wasn’t expecting to be in that Ireland squad and then to get the news that he was missing out on the World Cup all came as a bit of a hammer blow,” Wright said.

“We’ve made it apparent to Jason that we won’t judge him differently for that position as the spare batter at the top of the order whether he plays against Ireland or not.”

Speaking of Kohler-Cadmore, he is currently taking the field for Somerset versus Kent in Taunton as part of their County Championship game. The game is expected to end on Friday, September 22. This season, the batter has performed admirably in domestic competition. He contributed to Somerset’s first T20 Blast victory since 2005 and is now the team’s second-highest run-scorer in the Championship.
