Roy will still go through the process of rigorous treatment for the next few days to make him available for selection for a match his team cannot afford to lose.

England Team will keep the decision pending until the morning of the match that is to be against India, unless his condition worsen up to the next 48 hours and it is clear he is not fit.

“He (Jason) looks pretty good. I think he has been progressing nicely, so it is nice to see him back at the nets, back in the group and taking part,” Buttler was quoted as saying by ICC media.

“I’m sure the medical team will know more than I do, but he looks pretty good (to be back). He has been a very important player for us a long time. We know we can perform better as a group and Jason is a fantastic player to be available. It would be a boost to have him play.”

Buttler hopes both teams will live up to expectations on Sunday.
