Jason Roy marks a thunderous return to cricket by smashing 115 runs off 46 balls in England’s warm-up game against BCA President XI at Kensington Oval. The star English opener was out of action after tearing up his left calf muscle during the T20 World Cup.
The right-handed opener got injured during one of the games against South Africa and he was taken off the game. The hard-hitting batsman showcased his full match fitness for the 5-match T20I series against West Indies.
