PSL: Jason Roy’s quickfire 116 takes Quetta Gladiators to the finish line


EnglandJason Roy, representing the Quetta Gladiators in a Pakistan Super League match against Lahore Qalandars, devastated the latter’s bowling attack when he scored a quick 116 from just 57 balls.

Batting first, the Qalandars had scored 204/5 from 20 overs, but Roy’s sublime innings of 11 fours and 8 sixes took the match away from them. Finally, Haris Rauf caught him on David Wiese’s delivery in the 16th. Roy had licked him and ended up finding the man with the short, thin legs.

The Gladiators won a close match with just 3 balls to spare with 7 wickets in hand and credit and applause will go to Roy’s remarkable innings.

Roy had joined the Quetta Gladiators squad on the Sunday before this crucial match. His arrival helped Quetta change her plans, as he provided a different dimension to an otherwise ordinary side of Gladiator.

The Englishman returned from international duty as he was part of England’s T20 International team taking on the West Indies.

In the five match T20I series, Roy had a fluctuating performance; he scored 6 in the first T20I and followed that up with a 45-run slam that included six limits and two maximums. The third T20I saw Roy’s wicket drop for 19 runs as England chased a West Indies target of 225 runs. Roy then hit a 42-ball half-century in the fourth and ended the series with a two-bound hitting cameo.
