“I Was A Bit Overcome With A Few Emotions And Stuff Like That” – Jason Roy After His Terrific Ton vs South Africa


The 32-year-old England National Cricket Team opening batsman Jason Roy smashed a brilliant century in the ODI series opener against South Africa National Cricket Team at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein.

Roy smashed 113 runs off 91 balls, with 11 fours and 4 sixes, but his innings came in a losing cause as the Three Lions faced a 27-run defeat against the Proteas.

Speaking after smashing an incredible century, Jason Roy, who was dropped from the side ahead of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, said that he was pleased with his performance in the match. He also talked about his century celebration.

“I’m feeling very good, I actually didn’t sleep that well – I had about five hours’ sleep, I was a bit overcome with a few emotions and stuff like that, it’s been a turbulent few months,” he said.

“I woke up really well, though, it was the best five hours’ sleep I’ve had. It’s been a horrible year. (The celebration) was a little bit of anger around it all just because I set everything to the back of my mind and locked a few things away in a cupboard and went out and played the way I have played throughout my career.

“I was frustrated I hadn’t got to that mindset earlier but it was a very nice feeling.”

I’ve got to keep scoring runs – Jason Roy

Jason Roy’s knock against the Proteas was his first 50-plus score in 15 international innings and he averaged just 12.5 in eight innings in the SA20 2023.

Meanwhile, Roy said that he will just have to focus on scoring runs and contributing to England’s success.

“Absolutely not, I don’t see it that way,” he said. “I’ve played a lot of games in my career, been around for a while now and even after a bad year you can get forgotten quite quickly.

“It’s a case of keeping pushing, keeping this environment going in this culture we have in the team because it’s a huge year ahead for us in 50-over cricket.”

“I’ve got to keep scoring runs and just building this team to the place where we were at back in 2019,” he added.
