English player Jason Roy will return to the field to play for the upcoming ODI series against Australia.
Due to a side strain which he had suffered from training, English player Jason Roy has now passed the fitness test and will be seen playing for England again. After having missed out the T20I series against Australia, Roy has been selected to participate in the upcoming three-match ODI series against the same team.
Aside from Roy’s return, the English side will also have reserves like Dawid Malan, Phil Salt, and Saqib Mahmood. Joe Denly who was also supposed to be a reserve for the match has opted himself out of the series to return to Kent and play for the T20 Blast.
Team captain Eoin Morgan will also return to the squad and lead the team in the upcoming ODI match at the Old Trafford on Friday. His return will be more guaranteed this time as it had been proven that his finger injury was not that serious.
Aside from Roy, another player who might return is Jos Buttler if he passes the required COVID-19 test. Upon returning negative test results, he will then be allowed to return to the biosecure bubble that he had left after the team’s victory in the 2nd T20I.
As per coach Chris Silverwood, ‘Jos will be back in the bubble to join us in Manchester, baring Test results. He should be available to play. Eoin, obviously good news around his finger, and touch wood he'll be fit as well. Malan has come in as a reserve, Roy has come through fit so he will join the squad and obviously Salt has come in as a reserve as well’.
So far, the odds for the upcoming ODI series between the two are -136.99 for England and +102 for Australia. To learn more about the latest cricket odds, visit Betwala.
