England skipper Morgan hails Roy after match-winning 153

Roy failed to reach double figures as World Cup favorites England suffered a surprise defeat to Pakistan last time out, but the 28-year-old was in imperious form to put England on course for their highest ever World Cup batting total and a 106-run victory over Bangladesh.

His 150 was brought up with three successive sixes as Roy upped the ante, and captain Morgan highlighted just how important Roy is in the England set-up.

Roy feels his partnership with fellow opener Jonny Bairstow, who alongside Roy put on the second-century opening partnership of the World Cup, has been strong long before the World Cup began.

Morgan was also full of praise for his side’s bowling attack, with the hostile Jofra Archer, who took 3-30, in particular attracting attention once more.
