Jason Roy has signed with Sunrisers Hyderabad in place of Mitchell Marsh

Sunrisers Hyderabad have signed England striker Jason Roy to replace Mitchell Marsh, who has been sidelined all season for personal reasons.

Marsh, who played his first Indian Premier League game in 2010 has played 21 IPL matches. His successor, Jason Roy made his first IPL in 2017 playing for the Gujarat Lions and was later shown the Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) in the 2018 IPL show. He has played a total of eight games and scored 179 runs in one century.

He has played a total of eight games and scored 179 runs in one century. He averaged 29.83 with a strike rate of 133.58 and 91 got the best. Roy has shown some respectable form in the recent ODI and T20 series against India but has not been able to change the start.

Jaison Roy

A hard-hitting batsman, Jason Roy was called up to his girlfriend in England for the one-off T20I to be played against India in September 2014 after breaking 677 runs with an impressive 48.35 run that blew up the season's Natwest T20. Roy has also been a good player for the English Lions.

Roy did not do badly in first-class cricket but limited overs cricket, which gave him the freedom to express his feelings, is his strongest suit. The South African-born player came with the X-factor, England's much-needed ODI team for the 2015 World Cup.

The Surrey striker, along with Alex Hales, has been instrumental in putting England’s top woes rest on white cricket after the catastrophic 2015 World Cup campaign. With a little bit of foot movement, Roy can hit the ball for a long distance especially with a cross-bat twisting swing that he, in turn, often makes it look very easy. He scored two hundred against Sri Lanka in England in 2016 covering his top ODI scores during his time there. There was no looking back from then on. He was elected as the first opener of the election and despite his failure, he is considered an important member of the new England team.

Roy lost his chances during the 2017 Champions Trophy, against Pakistan, was suspended and replaced by Jonny Bairstow. However, with a run in the NatWest T20 Blast, Roy returned to the T20 team and hit 67 in the second game against South Africa. After returning to the ODI team he has grown from strength to strength. His impressive 180 innings against Australia in the MCG caught up with Alex Hales 171 as the best ODI result for the England striker. And his 221-run stand-up with Joe Root in the same match was the highest team in the third wicket in one-day cricket.

Jason Roy represented the Gujarat Lions and Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League in 2017 and 2018 respectively, but has decided to withdraw from the tournament next season due to World Cup preparations.

Mitchell Marsh

Mitchell Marsh is the younger brother of Shaun Marsh, a leading left-handed striker, and the son of Australia's first opener, Geoff Marsh. Unlike his father and older brother, Mitchell has worked in the art of fast bowling. He looks like a tough guy who hits everyone, leading the way in the middle order. He started playing competitive cricket at the age of 17 and plays for Western Australia in the home region. Even before he made his international debut, he was arrested by the IPL Deccan Charger in 2010. He last played for his country against South Africa in the T20I at Wanderers in 2011.

He became a small T20 agent at a very young age. He was called up to the Pune Warriors squad in 2011 and remained with them until 2013. He also played for Nagenahira Nagas in the Sri Lanka Premier League. Back home in Australia, he has been a regular member of the Perth Scorchers side in the Big Bash League since its inception in 2011.

After some impressive matches, the Australian selectors selected Marsh into the Zimbabwe tri-series squad and he caught the eye of the game in the first match of the tournament, with a cool 89 spirit. With Shane Watson's injury, Marsh made his Test debut against Pakistan during an Australian trip to the UAE in October 2014 and scored 87 best in the Test played in Abu Dhabi. He also performed well in the next ODI match against South Africa and played in the first two Border-Gavaskar Trophy Tests of 2014-15, before leaving the field due to a muscle injury on Day 1 of the second Test in Brisbane. He no longer participated in the series, but voters took him to the 2015 World Cup team as he was expected to return to normalcy.
