English player Jason Roy has signed up with the Perth Scorchers for the upcoming season of the Big Bash League.
After having played many T20 matches in his career, English player Jason Roy has already managed to have a nice experience that makes him one of England’s reputable batsmen. After having pulled off some impressive performances in the international stage with a strike rate of 147.51, he gets signed up by the Perth Scorchers for the upcoming season of the Big Bash League.
After having signed their new player, the Perth Scorchers released an official statement which says, ‘The Perth Scorchers will possess devastating firepower at the top of the order in the upcoming Big Bash League season, with the signing of explosive England opening batsman Jason Roy’.
‘In more good news for the club, the signatures of WA-contracted pair Joel Paris and Cameron Gannon have also been secured for BBL|10’, the team statement added, confirming the signing of another contracted pair.
Roy has carved about three half-centuries from five innings for Surrey in the Vitality T20 Blast which was played last month. There, he pulled off a nice 47-ball 66 in the final game played against Nottinghamshire.
Talking about his signing with the new team, he says, ‘The Scorchers squad looks very strong, I'm excited to be joining the club. I've heard the environment of the club is awesome and that it's a place where everyone wants to help get the best out of each other. I can't wait to get amongst the boys and help contribute to as many wins as possible’.
The 30-year-old player was also lauded by the team’s head coach Adam Voges who says, ‘Jason is a world-class performer who will bring added power and experience to our top order. It's great to be able to maintain a really strong WA flavour to our Scorchers squad. Both Joel and Cam bring plenty of experience and can fill a variety of roles throughout the tournament for us’.
The tenth season of the Big Bash League is scheduled to start on December 3 with a match held between the Adelaide Strikers and the Melbourne Renegades. To learn more about the different teams of the game, head over to Betwala.
