Jason Roy steals the show for England
England v Sri Lanka Fourth One-Day Highlights
What a week it has been for England’s Jason Roy who completed back to back hundreds in the One-Day Series against Sri Lanka.
After the outstanding performance by Jason Roy and Alex Hales at Edgaston which saw them demolish Sri Lanka by 10 wickets in the second One-Day International, Jason Roy was at it again smashing 162 in front of a packed crowd at the Kia Oval.
England continued their dominance over Sri Lanka into the Fourth One-Day International winning by 6 wickets – a victory which saw them complete their second highest run chase after Sri Lanka posted a score of 305-5. Rain was a continuous threat throughout the game, with play halted during the 18th over of Sri Lanka’s innings, reducing the game to 42 over’s per side.
But the rain didn’t seem to dampen England’s spirit.
England were never really under pressure with Joe Root contributing 65 to the run chase and impressive outings by Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow – and then there was Jason Roy who racked up an impressive score of 162, which saw the hosts claim a series victory with a 2-0 lead.
Watch Jason Roy smash 162 from 118 balls for England against Sri Lanka.
