A set plan is permitted to allow spinners to ignore the “smoke” around their batting form, along with the sweep and reverse sweep. jason roy To score 132 off 124 balls in a series-winning effort in the second ODI against Bangladesh.
Roy’s ton was big enough to end the hosts’ proud home record of seven unbeaten ODI series wins in seven years. Bangladesh were bundled out for 194 while chasing a target of 327, and it was Roy’s innings that mainly knocked them out of the contest.
Apart from playing the traditional sweep to feed the slower bowlers, Roy hit the left-arm spinners with a reverse hit for four boundaries.
“It was a plan [to sweep and reverse sweep] With the amount of turns,” Roy said. Going to the point was the safest option for me. I tried going for cover several times, it was too slow and too much spin. I tried to put her to bed quickly. Shakib once [Al Hasan] He gets the undercutter, I should have hit it on the sidescreen but I tried to sweep it [and got out], It was a bit poor decision but other than that I think you had to keep your boundary options very simple. When you score a lot of runs, you can hit it wherever you want. out there, [hitting the sweeps and reverse sweeps] Was one of the only boundary options for me today.”
Roy said that the Dhaka pitch played to the advantage of the batsmen. It was slow, but had a consistent degree of spin, which allowed easier strokeplay than in the first ODI where the pitch offered uneven bounce.
“As far as the skills of the batsmen are concerned, scoring runs in these kinds of conditions is as rewarding as it can get. I am very happy to score.”
“I only faced four balls the other day, it was obviously too easy today,” he said. “But there was a bit more spin but it was consistent. The other day it was a bit inconsistent bounce as well as turn. It was very low scoring whereas today was slower bounce. I think the boys showed a high amount of skill. We got that total. Give it.”
Roy talked about the relief of scoring runs on this Bangladesh tour, especially after getting out early in the first game.
“every time [scoring a hundred] Means the world. I worked hard to rectify my mistakes from the first match. I made a silly mistake then and I was hungry to score some runs. When you get to 40 there are a few hundreds in the past, and when you get to a hundred you feel really free-flowing. Every boundary was a scrap. I have formed a great partnership with Jos [Buttler], We ticked off well.
He said, “Everywhere there is a completely different skill. Nowhere like here. I have scored runs in India. As far as the skill of the batsmen is concerned, scoring runs in such conditions is equally beneficial.” That’s as far as it can get. I’m very happy.” Score. The runs we scored on that wicket today in what was a series-defining match was just fantastic.”
Roy said he learned from Dawid Malan’s book from the first ODI when the left-handed batsman scored his fourth ODI century. It essentially saved England from defeat, as Malan mastered the conditions to take the visitors home.
“I felt it very quickly once I got it in the air in the first game,” Roy said. “The way Malan played his innings, I quickly got the feeling to switch on, put my head in and bat for some time.
“It was just timing at the crease. If I bat for that long, I can score a lot of runs. It’s as simple as that. I reduced the risk in boundary choices. The one I got out on was a single. was at greatest risk.” I took the boundary option. I got out stupidly.
