England's Roy ruled out of Australia clash at Lord's

SHOWS: LONDON, ENGLAND, UK (JUNE 24, 2019) (ICC - NO RESALES) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ENGLAND CAPTAIN, EOIN MORGAN, SAYING ON JASON ROY: "He's Jason Roy.

Of course he's a big loss.

He's an outstanding performer for us, the way he plays epitomises the way we play as a group.

He's been in the team for a very long time." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ENGLAND CAPTAIN, EOIN MORGAN, SAYING: "I think it's a good match-up for both teams. It's normally a really good game.

The games we've played against them in the last two years, probably the score line hasn't been as fair as both sides have played.

I think the way that both sides play lends itself to a good game of cricket, as well.

So, it will be a challenge for both sides I think." 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) AUSTRALIA CAPTAIN, AARON FINCH, SAYING: "They tend to bounce back and go ultra-aggressive, as well.

So, we are ready for that.

We're expecting them to come out ultra-hard and take the game on, which has been one of their main traits over the last couple of years, in particular.

So yeah, we're focused more about what we are doing well and what we can improve in our game." 4.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) AUSTRALIA CAPTAIN, AARON FINCH, SAYING ON JASON ROY AND JAMES VINCE: "He's proved to be a class top-order player in his own right.

So, you can never underestimate anyone in any opposition, and we've done our due diligence on him as we have with every other player.

So, it would be really naive to overlook someone of his quality, because you just leave yourself short, and you leave yourself open to making some mistakes there.

Yeah, I think Jason's been a huge part of their planning and a huge part of their success over the last couple of years, as well.

He obviously plays a high tempo and high-risk game, which when it comes off is super influential on the game I think." STORY: England opener Jason Roy has been ruled out of Tuesday's (June 25) World Cup match against Australia at Lord's after failing to recover from an hamstring injury in time.

Roy, who smashed 153 against Bangladesh earlier in the tournament, was injured in the win over West Indies 10 days ago and has missed games against Afghanistan and Sri Lanka.

A second scan on Monday (June 15) morning showed Roy's injury was much improved, boosting hopes he will be fit to play in the match against India at Edgbaston on Sunday (June 30).

"He's Jason Roy.

Of course he's a big loss.

He's an outstanding performer for us, the way he plays epitomises the way we play as a group," England captain Eoin Morgan told a news conference on Monday.

James Vince is likely to continue to deputise but has struggled to deliver solid starts at the top of the order with scores of 26 and 14 in England's previous two matches.

But Australia captain Aaron Finch said his side are not underestimating Vince.

"He's proved to be a class top-order player in his own right.

So, you can never underestimate anyone in any opposition, and we've done our due diligence on him as we have with every other player.

So, it would be really naive to overlook someone of his quality," Finch said of Vince.

England's loss to Sri Lanka was their second league stage defeat and the pre-tournament favourites currently occupy the fourth and final semi-final spot in the standings.

However, their chances of progressing are made significantly more difficult by the fact their three remaining games are against Australia, India and New Zealand, arguably their three biggest rivals for the title.

Both captains said they expect a good, hard-fought match when they meet at Lord's on Tuesday.

"I think it's a good match-up for both teams. It's normally a really good game." Morgan said.

"They tend to bounce back and go ultra-aggressive, as well.

So, we are ready for that.

We're expecting them to come out ultra-hard and take the game on, which has been one of their main traits over the last couple of years," said Finch.
