In what comes as a very alarming piece of news for England fans, Jason Roy pulled up a muscle while batting during the T20 World Cup encounter against South Africa and had to be carried off the field. The right-hander seemed to be in excruciating pain due to the sudden strain, which left batting partner Jos Buttler with a worried look on his face. He and Roy got England off to a flyer in the steep 190-run chase, and the team’s hopes of chasing down the total took a beating with the injured opener being ruled out of the remaining game.
😰 OH NO! 😰
Bad news for #England as Jason Roy has pulled up and has to be carried off the field.
England will hope it is not too serious but that doesn’t look good. #SouthAfrica #T20WorldCup
