Sunrisers Hyderabad signed up England batsman Jason Roy as a replacement for Mitchell Marsh, who has made himself unavailable for the entire season owing to personal reasons.

Marsh, who made his Indian Premier League debut in 2010, has played a total of 21 IPL games. Marsh had got injured in the first game of the 2020 edition and could not play thereafter.

His replacement, Jason Roy made his IPL debut in 2017 playing for Gujarat Lions & later featured for Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) in the 2018 IPL edition.

He has played a total of 8 matches and scored 179 runs with one half-century to his name. He averages 29.83 at a strike-rate of 133.58 with a best of 91. Roy showed decent form in the recent ODI and T20 series against India but was not able to convert starts.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have acquired Roy at his base price of 2 Crore.
