Jason Roy’s Profile: The swaggering strokeplay of Jason Roy became a central feature of England's limited-overs cricket after their miserable display in the 2015 World Cup insisted that a more adventurous approach was essential. For Roy, a Surrey opener of dashing disposition, such a change of emphasis was ideal. His maiden ODI ton had come before the World Cup, against Pakistan in Dubai, but it was in 2016 under the leadership of Eoin Morgan, adamant that England must play free-spirited cricket, that Roy found his voice, making two ODI hundreds against Sri Lanka in England, the second of them - a career-best 162, the second highest ODI score made at the time by an England batsman - coming in front of his adoring home crowd at The Oval.
