Jason Roy opened the innings in all matches of T20 World Cup 2021. He played a good knock only against Bangladesh. His stats were quite bad in the last edition. Even after the tournament, he failed to find his form. It was quite clear that he was struggling to score runs in the shortest format of the game. Since November 2021, Roy scored just 206 runs at an average of 18.72. Therefore, the selectors took a hard decision and dropped him for the squad.
