Jason Roy revealed how win over India in world cup helped them.
Basically, the match between India and England was a decider. It decided which team will qualify for WC semi-finals; England or Pakistan. The pre-tournament favorites did not have a good campaign until that point.
Roy revealed how win against India; restored their confidence. He said:
That brought life back into the team a little bit. We had our full team back, we won that game and everyone got to relax a little bit, we started playing the way we normally play. That was a weird moment as everyone had to come together, attended team meetings where we discussed our fears. That’s when we played our best cricket,” said Jason Roy while speaking to CricTracker.
“In a lot of series, we lost the opening matches. We tried to be as aggressive and positive as we could. And that starts in the morning when we had breakfast and turn up to the ground. And we ended up playing some incredible cricket again. After we won, we realised that’s how we should play,” the English opening batsman added.
Neverthless, that win helped England win the World Cup.
