Jason Roy will not be participating in the ODI series against Ireland and he has kept him out of the squad as he has been excluded from the England’s ODI World Cup team.
Joe Root has decided to take a week off, along with his fellow members of the World Cup squad, due to the cancellation of his plan to prepare against Ireland due to bad weather in Leeds. As a result, the young Somerset batsman Tom Kohler-Cadmore has been included in the squad to play against Ireland.
Roy was initially included in England’s preliminary 15-player squad last month. However, he couldn’t participate in their four-match ODI series against New Zealand due to back spasms. As a result, Harry Brook was called in to replace him in the squad which was announced on Sunday.
The national selector of England Cricket Team, Luke Wright said,”He wasn’t expecting to be in that Ireland squad and then to get the news that he was missing out on the World Cup all came as a bit of a hammer blow. We’ve made it apparent to Jason that we won’t judge him differently for that position as the spare batter at the top of the order whether he plays against Ireland or not.”
Playing for Somerset, Kohler-Cadmore has made a strong impression in various formats of the game. He departed Yorkshire at the conclusion of the previous summer. During this time, he showcased his abilities by achieving an average of 34.92 with an impressive strike rate of 160.32, contributing significantly to Somerset’s victory in the Blast which they had last won in 2005.
