Batsman Joe Denly says England are a”better team” with Jason Roy within their side after he confirmed he’ll swap places with the opener to the fourth Ashes Test against Australia.
Roy has fought in the show up to now, scoring 57 runs in six innings.
He will drop for the Old Trafford Test, which starts on Wednesday to number four, with Denly taking his position near the top of the purchase.
Denly said it’s”good for England cricket” which Roy will continue to keep his place.
“I’ve got a call from Joe Root after a little time and he stated he would prefer for me to really go at the peak of the purchase and attempt to get us off to a good beginning,” Denly told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“Obviously Jason’s going to bat at four.”
Kent batsman Denly opened the batting on his England debut but scored six and 17 before moving into later and number three number four.
He just averages 24.33 from his six Tests but produced a significant half-century at England’s second innings of the third Test at Headingley, which the hosts won to level the series at 1-1 with two games to play.
Roy was introduced after starring within an aggressive opening batsman, however, his greatest score in the Ashes series is only 28.
England have opted to transfer him down the order to face an older ball rather than shed the Surrey batsman after four evaluation.
“With Jason Roy from the group, I think we are a better team for certain,” Denly stated.
“Together coming in at four with the new ball worn off, and hopefully myself and Rory [England opener Rory Burns] doing our jobs on top, it enables him to come in and play his way.
“He’s a dangerous player he’s great to have there.”
