Champions Trophy: Jason Roy set to be dropped for England v Pakistan

England opener Jason Roy

Jason Roy scored just 18 runs in England’s three group games at the Champions Trophy

England are set to drop opener Jason Roy for Wednesday’s Champions Trophy semi-final against Pakistan in Cardiff.

South Africa-born Roy, 26, has made just 51 runs in his past eight one-day international innings.

BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew says Roy did not bat in Tuesday’s net session, with Jonny Bairstow – his likely replacement – in first.

Captain Eoin Morgan backed Roy, but the Surrey batsman was out second ball in the win over Australia on Sunday.

Roy has made 1,462 runs in 46 ODI appearances, at an average of 34.
