ICC World Cup 2019 – WATCH: Ben Stokes, Eoin Morgan in splits as Jason Roy flattens umpire Joel Wilson after completing his ton

Posted On / /

England opener Jason Roy completed his maiden World Cup century against Bangladesh in a very unusual fashion. While running towards the non-striker’s end, Roy flattened the on-field umpire Joel Wilson at the Sophia Gardens Cricket Ground in Cardiff.

Thankfully, no damage was done Wilson was up on his feet and Roy finally got the chance to raise his bat to the home crowd.

The incident had the England dressing room including all-rounder Ben Stokes and captain Eoin Morgan burst into laughter.

Relive the moment here:

Roy scored a 121-ball 153 and powered England to post 386 for six, leaving Bangladesh needing to surpass Ireland’s 329-7 against England in 2011, the highest score by any team batting second to win a World Cup match.

Despite Shakib Al Hasan’s 121, the Bangladesh Tigers were never in the hunt and they were eventually dismissed for 280 with seven balls to spare.
