Jason Roy shouldn’t be written off at 32: Kevin Pietersen

Kevin Pietersen has urged England to have faith in Jason Roy amid the opener’s form slump in white-ball cricket. Roy has been one of England’s most exciting and bankable players at the top of the order in recent years and was avital cog in the wheel of the World Cup winning squad in 2019, but has struggled for runs and rhythm this summer.

Roy has managed just 197 runs across 11 England games, with no fifties, while he began his Hundred campaign with the Oval Invincibles with an ignominous first-ball duck followed by 10 against Welsh Fire.
