England opener Jason Roy is ruled out of team’s next two ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 games – against Afghanistan (June 18) and Sri Lanka (June 21). Roy suffered a hamstring injury while fielding during England’s last game against West Indies on Friday.

“England batsman Jason Roy, who left the field during West Indies’ innings in the ICC Cricket World Cup fixture on Friday due to left hamstring tightness, underwent an MRI scan on Saturday in London,” said England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) in a media release.

“The MRI confirmed that Roy has suffered a hamstring tear. As a result of the injury, he will be reassessed on an ongoing basis this week. He is set to miss England’s next two matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup against Afghanistan (18 June) and Sri Lanka (21 June),” added ECB.

Meanwhile, Eoin Morgan, who had left the field after suffering back spasms during the West Indies game, will be monitored over the next 24 hours ahead of England’s clash against Afghanistan.

“The spasm has settled down and will be monitored over the next 24 hours ahead of England’s next match against Afghanistan tomorrow (Tuesday) at Old Trafford, Manchester,” concluded ECB.
