Roy embarrassed after picking up bizarre injury in his ‘moment of stupidity’

first_imgEngland and Surrey opener Jason Roy missed a vital T20 Blast game for his county side against Glamorgan on Friday after his bizarre, self-inflected in injury.Earlier in the week on Wednesday, Roy was dismissed for a golden duck by Afghanistan off-spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman during Surrey’s match against Hampshire. Following the dismissal, a frustrated Roy threw the bat to the ground but to add insult to injury, the bat bounced back and hit him on the face and injured him.And on Friday, Roy revealed that he was extremely embarrassed with what happened that day.”I’m extremely embarrassed and apologetic to my team-mates and fans for this moment of stupidity,” said Roy.”Following my dismissal on Wednesday evening, I threw my bat into the ground purely out of self-frustration. It bounced, hit me, and as a result I sustained the injury.”I’ve never been so motivated and so positive about my game, and I assure you I will learn from my mistake as I am my own biggest critic.”Roy hasn’t had a great T20 Blast in 2018 as he only managed 163 runs from eight matches at an average of 23.28. He scored only one half-century (84 against Middlesex)And, Roy’s absence didn’t affect Surrey match as they beat Glamorgan comfortably by 24 runs via the DLS method, thanks to Australian Aaron Finch’s unbeaten 16-ball 44.But the victory wasn’t enough for Surrey to progress into the quarter-finals as they finished fifth with Somerset, Kent, Sussex and Gloucestershire finishing above them to move into the last eight from the south group.advertisementWorcestershire, Durham, Lancashire and Nottinghamshire, who occupied the top four positions respectively in the north group will join them in the quarters.last_img read more
