India vs England 2020-21 – Jason Roy backs England to learn quickly after rediscovering his own spark

Jason Roy has backed England’s batsmen to learn quickly from a disappointing display in the second T20I, and get to grips with the slow, low surfaces in Ahmedabad that may prove to be a major factor in their T20 World Cup campaign in India later this year.

Roy top-scored for England for the second match in a row in Sunday’s seven-wicket defeat, but his 46 from 35 balls proved to be a laboured affair. In particular he struggled with his timing off the legspin of Yuzvendra Chahal, as he failed to make contact with the first four of his six attempted reverse sweeps.

However, Roy’s dismissal to Washington Sundar in the 12th over of the match exposed England’s middle order to the full vagaries of a two-paced wicket, and a succession of batsmen came out swinging but failed to capitalise on England’s solid platform of 91 for 2 after 11 overs.
