Jason Roy’ disappointing day continues
Jason Roy had a disappointing day in the field where he dropped a crucial catch that would turn the match for Pakistan. The match referee found him guilty for using obscenities after a misfield during the Pakistan innings.
Hafeez hits one high in the air and England catch those in their sleep, right? Not this time. Jason Roy spills it and lets the Pakistan batsman off the hook. 141-2 after 25 overs.
