Jason Roy, England opening batsman and Riverside Capital ambassador, hit a record breaking one-day international score by an England player with 180 runs in the first ODI in Melbourne.
His 180 from 151 balls made for England’s all-time highest individual ODI score and formed the backbone of their chase, overhauling Australia’s 304 with five wickets to spare.
The incredible knock sees Jason get his international year off to a flying start. After England successfully winning the Series against Australia 4-1, Jason now joins the England T20 squad to compete against Australia and New Zealand in the upcoming Tri Series. He will then continue his time in the southern hemisphere with a five match ODI series against New Zealand. Jason also entered the recent IPL auction and will be representing Delhi Daredevils in this year’s competition.
Speaking to CEO, Dominic Wright, Jason said: “Every moment I walk onto that pitch wearing the England badge is an honour. To contribute in such a way is incredibly special and a day I will never forget”.
