The England player is determined to prove himself

Now, Jason Roy knows that he can very well do the same in Test Cricket and wants to fight for his position, and get back in the team. He has the hunger to prove himself and he is motivated to do that by any means possible.

Scoring the weight of runs in white-ball cricket and then not being able to do that in Test cricket was upsetting for me because I really felt like I could. I still feel like I can, but I need to fight for my position again, get back in there, and prove to myself that I can actually do it. I definitely have the hunger to play.”
