T20 cricket is currently being dominated in England because it is being played T20 Vitality Blast and runs are raining heavily in this tournament. The team of Surrey and Middlesex were face to face at Lord’s on Thursday and in this match a batsman has created a lot of ruckus. The name of this player is Jason Roy. Jason is playing for Surrey and he has led the team to a spectacular victory with his stormy batting. In this match, Surrey decided to bat first and scored 208 runs for the loss of seven wickets. Middlesex’s team could not go beyond 188 runs for the loss of eight wickets in 20 overs. Surrey’s captain Chris Jordan also played an important role in helping the team win.
Chris Jordan did wonders with his balls and did not let the batsmen stay on the wicket. Let us tell you that Jason had withdrawn from IPL-2022. He was bought by Gujarat Titans which later won the title. At the same time, Jordan played for Chennai Super Kings under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni this season. However, this fast bowler could not impress with his game.
Runs hit at a strike rate of 180
Middlesex captain Stephen Iskinazi won the toss and elected to bowl first. Jason took the responsibility of opening for Surrey and started scoring runs in his own style as soon as he arrived. However, he did not get support from the other end. His opening partner Will Jacques was dismissed after scoring nine runs, while Sam Curran returned to the pavilion without opening an account. But Jason’s storm from the other end did not stop. Jason pulled his innings till the third ball of the 16th over. He got out on the same ball and missed a century. Jason scored 81 runs off 45 balls in his innings. He hit 10 fours and three sixes in his innings. During this his strike rate was 180 runs.
Captain Jordan showed up
Surrey had made a huge score on the basis of Jason. Now the responsibility of saving it was on the bowlers of Surrey. Team captain Jordan led the team from the front and took four wickets in his name. He conceded 31 runs in his quota of four overs. Jordan took the wickets of Max Holden (33), Joey Cracknell (6), Luke Hollman (21) and Martin Anderson (0). Apart from him, Sunil Narine took two wickets. Chris Green scored an unbeaten 46 for Middlesex.
