The destructive opener from England, Jason Roy has decided to opt-out of the upcoming season of IPL. He was recently bought by the Gujarat Titans at a base price of INR 2 Cr at the mega auction.
Roy, who was unsold in the previous year’s IPL auction, would have been a front choice opener for his franchise. But, he has decided not to play the IPL 2022 due to bio-bubble fatigue.
He has also informed his new franchise about his unavailability. In our article, we take a look at five players who can be signed by Gujarat Titans for a replacement of Jason Roy.
5#5 Martin Guptill
The right-handed opener from New Zealand, Martin Guptill would be a perfect replacement for England’s Roy at Gujarat Titans. He is one of the few players who could launch an attack on the opponent bowlers from the very first delivery.
It’s difficult to stop him once he settles as he can trash any bowling lineup. He also adds plenty of experience to the squad and helps them to clinch the title in their very first season.
