Surrey hand Roy new contract

England new boy Jason Roy has been awarded a new Surrey contract.

Roy, the leading run-scorer in this season's T20 Blast competition, has signed a new three-year deal to stay at The Oval.

He is expected to make his first England appearance in a one-off T20 international against India on Sunday.

"I am very pleased to have signed this new three-year deal at Surrey and it is exciting times at the club," he said.

"The nucleus of the squad has grown up playing together and we will be looking to win some silverware together over the next three years."

Surrey director of cricket Alec Stewart said: "We are delighted that Jason has signed his new contract and committed his future to the club.

"Jason has had an excellent season in all forms of the game culminating in his deserved call up to the England squad.

"With his continued work ethic and improvement, I would hope to see him playing other formats of the game for England very soon."
