England batsman Jason Roy shared his views on different T20 leagues around the world. He has been part of the Indian Premier League, Pakistan Super League, and Big Bash League. In his opinion, IPL is above the other two tournaments.

"I’ve been to Pakistan only once for PSL. I’ve been to India 3-4 times, BBL is completely different. I think as far as cricket experience goes, I am gonna go with IPL," Delhi Capitals' Jason Roy told in an interview with CricTracker.

Roy was part of England's World Cup 2019 winning squad. There was a time in the tournament when England faced India in a must-win match to stay in the competition. He had scored 66 runs in that match and the home side went on to win by 31 runs.

Speaking about the match, Jason said the team was worried before the game, but later got relaxed after the much-needed win.

"That brought life back into the team a little bit. We had our full team back, we won that game and everyone got to relax a little bit, we started playing the way we normally play. That was a weird moment as everyone had to come together, attended team meetings where we discussed our fears. That’s when we played our best cricket.

"In a lot of series, we lost the opening matches. We tried to be as aggressive and positive as we could. And that starts in the morning when we had breakfast and turn up to the ground. And we ended up playing some incredible cricket again. After we won, we realized that’s how we should play," he recalled.

Roy picked Rohit Sharma to be his ideal opening partner with another option being David Warner.
