Profile

Jason Roy was attracting rave reviews before he turned 20 as a prodigiously talented schoolboy cricketer for Whitgift and represented Surrey from all age-group levels since Under-11s. Born in South Africa he came to the UK aged 10 and soon started to move through the system. He made his Surrey debut as a 17-year-old in 2008 during the Twenty20 Cup and his fielding talents were noticed by England, who used him as a sub later that summer against South Africa. Despite consistent performances in the Surrey 2nd XI it wasn't until 2010 that he broke into the first team again. One Twenty20 innings made everyone stand up and take notice as he slammed 101 off 57 balls against Kent at Beckenham. Later in the summer he made his Championship debut and he proceeded to score an unbeaten 76 from 65 balls against Leicestershire. His success was enough to alert England's selectors who gave him a place on the Performance Programme tour to India before the England Lions tour to Sri Lanka in early 2012.
