England’s in-form opener Jason Roy has been ruled out of T20 World Cup 2021 due to a calf injury, which he sustained during the game against South Africa on Saturday. Roy has been replaced in England’s squad for the remaining matches at the marquee event by James Vince, a top-order batsman.

Jason Roy has been ruled out of T20 World Cup 2021 due to a calf injury, which he sustained during the game against South Africa on Saturday. The opening batsman looked to be in a lot of pain as he was seen walking with crutches after retiring hurt on 20 from 15 balls.

Roy, who featured in five matches for England at the marquee event, scored 123 runs at an average of 24.5. He will now be replaced in the squad by James Vince, who was a travelling reserve in the England team. Roy’s injury will be a second major blow for England as they have already lost the services of Tymal Mill, who was ruled out of the tournament due to a thigh injury.

Roy stated he will be staying back in the UAE to support England in the remainder of the tournament. 

"I’m gutted to be ruled out of the World Cup. It is a bitter pill to swallow. I will be staying on to support the boys, and hopefully, we can go all the way and lift that trophy. It has been an unbelievable journey so far, and we have to continue expressing ourselves and concentrating on us," Roy said in a statement.

"The rehab has already started, and even though I’ve torn my calf, I’m going to give myself the best chance of being ready for the T20 tour of the Caribbean at the start of next year," he said.

England will face New Zealand in the first sem-final on Wednesday, November 10 in Abu Dhabi.
