Jason Roy Crashes into Umpire after Century, Morgan and Stokes Epic Reactions

Monday, June 10, 2019 • Common Sport News Comments

In the match between England and Bangladesh on Saturday, Jason Roy scored his ninth ODI century. He probably would have liked to have celebrated differently, but unfortunately, the batsman who was watching the ball go crashed into umpire Joel Wilson who did not see him coming either. He was on 96 when he hit a shot towards deep midwicket and a misfield ensured that the ball reached the ropes. As he was tracing the ball, he did not see the umpire in his path. Wilson himself was also looking at the ball speed away for a boundary, leading Roy to crash straight into him. 

Thankfully none of them were seriously injured and the umpire was seen to be smiling once Roy pulled him up to his feet. Two others from the England team had a good laugh watching the whole incident. Captain Eoin Morgan and Ben Stokes reacted in the most extraordinary way. Stokes can be seen clutching his head and Morgan covered his smile with his hand. Both seemed quite shocked as they applauded their chum for his century.
