England cricket team batsman Jason Roy is ready to break the country’s central contract for franchise cricket.
Players are now ready to do anything for the huge amount they are getting in franchise cricket and the latest example of this has been seen now. England cricket team batsman Jason Roy is all set to leave England’s central contract. Jason Roy has been included in his team for two years by the Los Angeles Knight Riders for the Major T20 League to be held in America. However, after this news surfaced, Jason has made it clear that he is not leaving the England team and will be available to play in the ODI World Cup 2023.
According to Daily Mail, Knight Riders have signed Jason Roy for Rs 30.68 crore for two years. Jason Roy is ready to give up the central contract of the England Cricket Board after this. Jason is currently playing in the white-ball format for England and it is expected that he may also be given a place in the team for the ODI World Cup 2023 to be held in India. Before this, if Jason leaves the England team, then it will be a big blow for this team. Jason Roy, however, was not given a place in the England team for the T20 World Cup last year.
The 32-year-old Jason Roy will be the first England player to feature in the Major T20 league which already has players like Aaron Finch, Quinton de Kock and Anrich Norkhia. On the other hand, the ECB says on Jason Roy’s decision that his decision will not affect Mott’s selection plans or the next round of central contracts, which are given in October.
England have to take part in the Ashes next month, with series against New Zealand and Ireland in August and September. Meanwhile, England are yet to play any white-ball matches and till then Jason Roy will be back as he has to play for The Oval Invincibles in The Hundred. Although Roy leaving the England team in this way is definitely a big risk because it shows how franchise cricket is dominating now. At the same time, let us tell you that Jason Roy was a part of the Kolkata Knight Riders team in IPL 2023 and this team could not reach the playoffs under the captaincy of Nitish Rana.
