Gujarat Titans IPL 2022 Strategies
Gujarat Titans have to make new strategies as Jason Roy optioned out from IPL 2022 Gujarat Titans looking for new players to fill the opener spot.
Roy recently played some good knocks in the PSL Pakistan Super league and 303 runs in just 6 matches with an average of 50.55 and a strike rate of 170. He was the top performer of the PSL and the highest run-getter from Quetta Gladiators’ side.
Jason Roy was recently blessed with a 2nd baby boy in January 2022. If Roy were to be in the bubble throughout the IPL, he would probably need to be away from his family for more than 2 months.
However, this decision might create problems getting picked in the next IPL seasons because IPL franchises build teams with the strategies and pulling out from the tournament before 20 days of starting to make team management do extra work to look for new players and rebuild the strategies.
Jason Roy is the First player of IPL 2022 to pull out his name, although many players in the past have already optioned out their name from the tournament before and ongoing tournaments like Adam Zampa and Richardson pulled out their name from 2nd phase of IPL 2021.
