England opener Jason Roy opened up on his mental state during the PSL 2022 edition and said that it was a 'weird place'.

Roy played for the Quetta Gladiators this year and was in fine form during the tournament. He scored 303 runs in just six games with an impressive average of 50.5 and a strike rate of 170.22.

"Things mentally weren't right with me at the PSL. I was in a weird place because I was playing good cricket but I wasn't enjoying myself, I wasn't happy and it was just a dark time," said Roy.

"It was just a good two months to come home and live a normal life for a bit after a tough couple of years."

"(There were) a lot of months away. Over 50 days of hotel quarantine the year before and then having a child in January and having to spend time away from him was just a bit too much," said Roy.

Roy also revealed about missing the IPL to get back his body and mind in rhythm and was happy to be back playing the game after the break.

“I missed the IPL to spend some time at home and it has refreshed my mind and body, and I recognised where I was at with a lot of things,” he added.
