Sunrisers Hyderabad usher in Jason Roy as Mitchell Marsh’s alternative

News

The Australian allrounder is understood to have opted out because of concerns over the lengthy stay in biobubbles

Mitchell Marsh has pulled out of the Sunrisers Hyderabad’s IPL 2021 campaign because of “personal reasons”*. As reported by ESPNcricinfo earlier in the day, the Sunrisers have drafted in England opener Jason Roy as Marsh’s replacement, acquiring him at his base price of INR 2 crore.

Marsh, last in action in Australia’s T20I series in New Zealand in the first week of March, is understood to have been worried about the seven-day quarantine followed by the long stretch in biosecure bubbles – like everyone else – for the duration of his team’s presence in the competition.

Roy, who had opted out of the Delhi Capitals’ campaign in IPL 2020 because of personal reasons – and had been replaced in the team by Australian pace bowler Daniel Sams – was released by the franchise ahead of the 2021 auction. Most recently, turning out for England in the white-ball series in India, Roy showed good form, scoring 144 runs in five T20I innings – with a strike rate of 132.11 – and following it up with 115 runs in three ODI innings, striking at 123.65.
