Jason Roy struggled in England’s first One-Day International against the Netherlands on Friday, June 17 at the VRA Ground in Amstelveen. The Dutch got off to a flying start when fast bowler Shane Snater took Roy’s wicket in the second over of the match.
It’s worth noting that Snater is Roy’s cousin, and the Englishman didn’t have a happy family reunion. Snater bowled an in-dipper, and Roy played all round it. Roy had to return after scoring only one run off seven balls after the ball crashed into the stumps.
Jason Roy gets out by his cousin Shane Snater in the 1st England vs Netherlands ODI
At the VRA Cricket Ground in Amstelveen, England are facing the Netherlands in the first ODI of a three-match ODI series. The current ODI World Champions are playing their first ODI match in 11 months, and they are led by Matthew Mott, their new head coach. England will be confident going into the match with top-quality players in their team.
After losing the toss, England was sent to bat first, and Jason Roy was quickly dismissed. Phil Salt and Dawid Malan, on the other hand, put on a historic 222-run partnership for the second wicket. Phil Salt hit 14 boundaries and three sixes in a brilliant 122-run innings in just 93 balls.
Even after Salt was dismissed, England’s innings were carried forward by Jos Buttler and Dawid Malan, and it is certain that England will score a massive total.
Coming to Jason Roy’s wicket, Snater’s delivery was pitched up and kept coming in and Roy attempted to drive through the covers but the bat turned in his hands, leaving a large gap between the bat and the pad. As the 31-year-old inside-edged it, the ball crashed into the stumps.
While Roy appeared dissatisfied with the dismissal, the Dutch camp was overjoyed at the early wicket.
