Sunrisers Hyderabad announces the addition of Jason Roy into the squad yesterday.
SRH got the shock after Mitchell Marsh announced his unavailability in the upcoming Indian Premier League. Under the recent COVID-19 protocols, the Australian would have to undergo seven-day quarantine plus a 50-day bio-bubble which seems impossible to him.
Marsh has played 21 games in the IPL in the last 10 years. He has previously played for Decan Chargers and Rising Pune Supergiants. SRH bought Marsh for a base price of Rs 2 crore at the 2020 auction. But he was not able to play for most of the season last year due to injury. He took an injury in his ankle during SRH’s opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and was unfit to continue. SRH was forced to replace him with West Indian Jason Holder last season.
However, SRH quickly replaced him with the English opener Jason Roy. The English opener was disappointed after being unsold in the auction this season. He was excellent in the last T20 series against India which was ended a few days ago.
Meanwhile, SRH has already started their training camp in Chennai. They will face Kolkata Knight Riders in their first match on April 11 at MA Chidambaram Stadium.
