Jason Roy targeting World Cup return against Australia
England's Jason Roy is targeting a World Cup return against Australia with the hamstring injury he picked up against West Indies ruling him out of the matches against Afghanistan and Sri Lanka. Roy left the field after pulling up while fielding in Friday's eight-wicket win over West Indies in Southampton and will miss England's matches at Old Trafford on Tuesday and Headingley on Friday. However, the opening batsman is hopeful of playing against Australia at Lord's on June 25 and told Sky Sports Cricket ahead of the game against Afghanistan that his condition is improving. "Frustrated is an understatement but it is what it is. I have got to look forward, be positive and make sure I am fully ready to go later in the tournament," said Roy, who scored 153 in England's win over Bangladesh and 54 against South Africa in the opening match of the competition.
