England’s Jason Roy to miss Pakistan T20 series with left side strain

England – England batsman Jason Roy will miss the T20 series with Pakistan after sustaining a left side strain.

The Surrey top-order batsman, 30, was injured during training for the three-match series, which starts at Old Trafford on Friday.

Roy had a scan on Wednesday and will remain with the England set-up during his rehabilitation programme.

England also play Australia in three T20’s followed by three one-day internationals from 4-16 September.

He has scored nine ODI hundreds and 18 fifties in 90 matches- plus five fifties in 35 T20s – but has had a lean run this summer.

After a first-ball dismissal against Ireland last month Roy made 24 in the first of the three-match ODI series against the same opposition, but only one more run in the remaining two games.

The attacking batsman, who has hit 113 international sixes, scored only 4 and 14 batting in the middle order for Surrey against Hampshire in the Bob Willis Trophy earlier this month.
