Jason Roy Is A World Cup Winner, Kevin Pietersen Backs England International To Come Good

Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen has backed England international Jason Roy to come good. He backed the cricketer in the need of the hour by calling him a “World Cup winner”.

The England cricketer is currently going through a lean patch. The right-handed batsman has been dismissed for a series of cheap scores and is literally low in terms of confidence levels.

Moreover, he has had a tough home summer and failed to make his presence count on the crease. He managed to aggregate 76 runs in six games, registering his best score of just 27.

Roy has by far represented the England cricket team in 5 Tests, 107 ODIs and 64 T20Is. He scored 187 runs in the purest format of the game, 3954 runs in ODIs and 1522 runs in T20Is.

The right-handed batsman scored just one fifty in Tests, 21 fifties and 10 centuries in One Day Internationals and 8 half-centuries in T20Is.

He has maintained a terrible batting average of 18.7 in Tests, 40.3 in ODIs and 24.1 in T20Is. His recent batting form has been a big cause of concern for him and for the team.

Kevin Pietersen backs Jason Roy in tough time

While speaking on Sky Sports, former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen added that despite seeing Jason Roy doing quite well playing under Eoin Morgan’s tutelage, it was sad to see fans write off Roy at such an early age.

Pietersen further added, “Jason is 32 years of age and what I’m sick and tired of in this country is writing people off at such a young age. Jason is a World Cup winner, he’s done an unbelievable job for Eoin Morgan.”

He added, “With smacking the ball and being a risk-taker, you are going to fail and when you start failing, failing can happen for a long time. Leave Roy. Give him the opportunity through The Hundred and T20s and back him.”

The former England international went on to add saying that if a new player fails to bring the best out of himself in the T20 series in Pakistan, fans would surely notice his absence.

“If Rob Key is listening, he is England’s best player and he has been England’s best player for a number of years. What they should be saying is ‘back your best players’. If they replace him and put a new guy in for seven T20s in Pakistan and he fails, people start saying ‘we need Roy for the World Cup,” he added.

Meanwhile, England locked horns with South Africa in the ODI and T20I series. The ODI series ended in a tie with both teams winning a game each. The third and final game ended as no result. On the other hand, Proteas won the T20I series by 2-1.
