Playing under the bio-security protocols isn’t an easy thing for a player. After all, they are confined to hotels and stadium. The same thing happened during the Pakistan Super League (PSL) early this year. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) wanted to ensure the smooth conduct of the season seven. The board successfully managed to conclude the tournament albiet a few players getting infected by COVID-19.

Meanwhile, England opening batter, Jason Roy, who played for Quetta Gladiators has shared his experiences of playing in the league. Roy said that it was mentally very tough for him to play in the six-team tournament. The right-hander revealed that he didn’t enjoy despite scoring runs heavily with the bat.

“Things mentally weren’t right with me at the PSL,” Roy was quoted as saying by Sky Sports. “I was in a weird place because I was playing good cricket but I wasn’t enjoying myself, I wasn’t happy and it was just a dark time. It was just a good two months to come home and live a normal life for a bit after a tough couple of years.”

The 31-year-old added that around 50 days of hotel quarantine and staying away from the family during his child’s birth was a bit too much for him. He said that he missed the Indian T20 League to spend some time home and refreshed his mind and body and reflected on a few things.

“(There were) a lot of months away. Over 50 days of hotel quarantine the year before and then having a child in January and having to spend time away from him was just a bit too much.” I missed the Indian T20 League to spend some time at home and it has refreshed my mind and body, and I recognised where I was at with a lot of things,” Roy said.
