Can Joe Denly Replace Jason Roy After His Injury?

The intensity of Jason Roy’s hamstring injury is still unclear. Meanwhile, England’s cricket team hopes that he’ll get fit for the next game that is against Afghanistan at Lord’s next week. But for the safe site, who will replace him if his hamstring tear is worse than expected? Here are some names lined-up for Roy’s replacement.

Ben Duckett

Though Duckett has made two half-centuries in three One-Day Cups, this latest one was in 2016. He embraces a short return to ICC this summer when he was selected for the T20I in Cardiff against Pakistan. However, he had a disappointing campaign in ODI, passing his 50 only once with an average of just 20.71. At is very stage, he is best an outsider.

Dawid Malan

Malan has only contributed to one ODI, but he is one of the two most preferable replacements. Although he didn’t enjoy the good One-Day Cup with only 50 with an average of 34.60, he proved himself a good batsman to make a Test century and made an average of 50 in T20I in five innings. However for his injury during a One-Day Cup in Ireland, he may be a strong candidate for replacement in the original World Cup squad.

Alex Hales

Hales, with six ODI centuries, can be an obvious selection generally and can be expected to take place of Roy. However, he currently seems unavailable for selection after his positive drug test. A change is anticipated on that front.

Joe Denly

Denly hardly missed the initial squad of 15, after being considered a spin-bowling all-rounder. He is experienced in opening the batting of ODIs in 2009. He got limited chances on his recall but he enjoys the 2018 season at the domestic level with an average of 70.28 along with two 50s and two centuries. Along with David Malan, he may be the most preferable replacement.

Sam Billings

His dislocated shoulder that he sustained in April ruled him out. He can be a strong candidate to replace Roy otherwise as he opened the batting and also appeared in the middle order. He is also sought to be an amazing fielder.
