Batsman Joe Denly says England are a”better team” with Jason Roy on their side once he confirmed he will swap places with all the opener for the fourth Ashes Test against Australia.
Roy has fought in the show so far, scoring 57 runs in six innings.
He’ll drop to number four together with Denly taking his position.
Denly said it is”good for England cricket” that Roy will continue to keep his location.
“I’ve got a call from Joe Root following a little time off and he stated he would like for me to proceed at the top of the purchase and try and get off to a fantastic start,” Denly told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“Clearly Jason’s likely to bat at four.”
The batting opened on his England debut against West Indies this year but scored 17 and just six before moving into number three and later number four.
He only averages 24.33 out of his six Tests but made an important 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 2 matches to play.
After starring as an opening batsman England’s 50-over World Cup-winning group roy was introduced into the Test side, however, his highest score from the Ashes series is just 28.
Instead of discard the Surrey batsman England have decided to move him down the order to face an ball.
“With Jason Roy from the team, I think we are a better team for certain,” Denly said.
“With him coming at four with the ball worn away, and hopefully myself and Rory [England opener Rory Burns] performing our jobs at the top, it empowers him to come in and play his manner.
“He’s a dangerous player he’s good to have there.”
Why was Ben Stokes’ Test at Headingley the exciting England triumph of all time?
