After being dropped from the prestigious ODI World Cup 2023, star England batter Jason Roy opted out of the upcoming Ireland tour. For the ODI series against neighbors, Roy made him unavailable for selection. With this decision, Roy paves the way for Tom Kohler-Cadmore to join the squad.

It is worth noting that Jason Roy was part of England’s preliminary squad for the ODI World Cup 2023. However, in the final squad, he was left out to accommodate young batter Harry Brook. Fans and former cricketers have slammed this decision from the England and Wales Cricket Board. Despite his decent performances in recent months, Roy has lost his seat on the India-bound flight.

Meanwhile, fans anticipate that Jason Roy might retire from international cricket after being misled by the team management. This decision to stay away from the Ireland tour might be an indication of Roy’s upcoming decision. It is worth noting that Harry Brook has a very poor track record in India. He failed amazingly in the Indian Premier League 2023 and had his worst tournament in the last few years. He has been selected for England’s ODI World Cup squad despite this.

“It came as a bit of a hammer blow”, says Chief Selector Luke Wright

Meanwhile, speaking about Jason Roy’s decision, England chief selector Luke Wright said that they have communicated with Roy and have expressed their belief in him. He said, “He wasn’t expecting to be in that Ireland squad, and then to get the news that he was missing out on the World Cup all came as a bit of a hammer blow.”

“We’ve made it apparent to Jason that we won’t judge him differently for that position as the spare batter at the top of the order, whether he plays against Ireland or not. We have selected a squad we are confident can go to India and win the World Cup”, Wright further explained team management’s decision to choose Harry Brook over Jason Roy.
