    Roy admitted that he had supportive conversations with the ECB regarding his MLC stint. He clarified that the ECB was happy with him playing in the competition as long as they did not have to pay him for the remainder of the contractual year. As a single-format player with no central contract, Roy wanted to take the opportunity to play in the competition as there are currently no scheduling conflicts with England. He added that it benefits him as an England player to play as much competitive cricket as possible. However, Roy emphasized that his priority is England cricket, especially with a World Cup soon upon them.
