England may have suffered a huge blow going by the looks of it with Jason Roy leaving the field midway during West Indies‘ innings in Match 19 of the ICC World Cup 2019 at The Rose Bowl in Southampton on Friday.

Roy was chasing the ball into the offside when he felt the back of his leg and immediately left the field with James Vince replacing him. He looked to be a lot of discomfort with clear signs of a hamstring injury.

England confirmed the injury which will prevent Roy from opening the innings. “Jason Roy will not field for the rest of this innings due to tightness in his left hamstring. He will therefore not be able to bat until No.7 on the batting card,” read a tweet from the official England Cricket twitter handle.

Roy has been in excellent form with the bat for the hosts. He has scored 215 runs in the World Cup including a century and a fifty. His 153-run knock against Bangladesh set the tone for England to win as suffering a surprising defeat against Pakistan.
