England opening batter Jason Roy is reportedly looking to terminate his national contract. It is understood that he is looking forward to playing for the Los Angeles Knight Riders (LAKR) in the upcoming Major League Cricket later this year. Roy is contracted with Kolkata Knight Riders in the ongoing IPL 2023. The LAKR is another franchise of the Knight Riders group.

Meanwhile, as reported by ESPNcricinfo, the 2019 World Cup winner’s representative has decided not to comment on the matter. Notably, the right-hander missed out on playing in the 20-20 World Cup 2022 which England won. The uncertain international future could be one of the reasons for his reported decision. Apart from him, Reece Topley is set to follow the same path.

Currently, he is rehabbing for the shoulder injury he sustained during the early stages of the IPL 2023. Below are the squads of all MLC teams.
