Chasing the target of 190 against South Africa in Sharjah, Roy pulled up a few strides into a single, struggling with an apparent issue with his left leg in the fifth over. While he limped through the run, he could go no further. He was in evident agony in the middle, unable to walk on his own, and seemed emotional when he was helped off the field by the physio and his teammates. He was replaced in the middle by Moeen Ali.

“I think it was a really good wicket. SA came really hard at us, batted well. I thought we were a bit off in the field, held them to a slightly par score,” Morgan added.

Coming back to the match, a Kagiso Rabada hat-trick and Rassie van der Dussen’s unbeaten 94 were enough to beat England by ten runs in the final Group 1 game of the tournament. But it wasn’t enough to save South Africa or knock out England.

“Obviously, Jason Roy going down the way he did does hurt, but we still did well to get that close. I think every game tests us in different ways. The biggest test this tournament has been against Sri Lanka, batting first and Jos Buttler rescued us from a hole. Had to bowl under the dew and we came out with flying colours. Today, there wasn’t as much pressure although it was a good test,” Eoin Morgan said.
