Jason Roy heads into the One-Day International series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates as a Slazenger brand ambassador after signing a deal with the iconic sports brand.

Roy, 25, helped Surrey earn promotion from the LV= County Championship Division Two in 2015 and his form in limited overs cricket saw him make his ODI debut against Ireland in May.

He was part of the England squad that beat New Zealand 3-2 and the one that went down by the same scoreline to Australia. Now he is preparing for his first tour with England.

As a 17-year-old, Roy used Slazenger equipment when making his T20 debut for Surrey in 2008, so he is delighted to be teaming up with them once again.

"I'm absolutely thrilled to be teaming up with Slazenger once again," he said.

"It’s been a fantastic couple of years for me and my focus now is continuing with the hard work and trying to stake a claim for a position in the team in all forms of the game for England," he added.

Roy, the top scorer in the T20 Blast 2015, and one of the top five in the Royal London One Day Cup, will be using the Slazenger V800 range for the series against Pakistan and beyond.

Oliver Gray, Slazenger brand manager is pleased to have secured a deal with one of England's brightest young talents.

"Jason is the future of England Cricket, so we are naturally delighted to have him back on board," he said.

"We are looking forward to building a successful partnership with Jason for years to come."
