Jason Roy limps off at the Rose Bowl

Jason Roy was forced to leave the field during England's Cricket World Cup clash against West Indies as he suffered what appeared to be a hamstring injury at the Rose Bowl.

The opener, who came into the match in fine form after hitting 153 against Bangladesh in England's last outing, was in immediate discomfort chasing a single in the outfield, which left captain Eoin Morgan expressing concern for the 28-year-old.

James Vince - the only back-up batsman in England's squad - took Roy's place in the field.

If the injury keeps Roy on the sidelines, Vince would be the prime candidate to take his place at the top of the batting order alongside Jonny Bairstow in future matches. All-rounder Moeen Ali, left out for the second game running on Friday, is the other option should Roy be ruled out.
