Jason Roy, who is now out during England’s World Cup semi-final clash against Australia 85 runs, spent a night at his daughter Everly’s bedside back in May.
The cricketer, who is married to wife Elle Moore, recalled his baby girl, who was eight-weeks-old at the time, was ill and looked “lifeless”.
“It was very scary,” he told The Sun. “She’s only eight weeks old.”
Revealing what happened, he said: “My missus came into the hotel room in Nottingham at 1am. Everly was throwing up, quite lifeless and we couldn’t keep her awake.”
Jason explained they called the emergency number who said they should try and keep Everly awake – but she kept falling asleep.
He continued: “She seemed lifeless, which was a real worry. So we took her to child A&E in hospital in Nottingham.
“They’re such good people and looked after us really well, did tests and everything until about 8.30am.”
He added: “Everly’s doing a lot better now. It was a stomach infection and a bit of a fever. She’s back home and we’ve had a couple of smiles out of her.”
After the scare, Jason went on to play in England’s opener’s century against Pakistan, following two hours sleep.
Meanwhile, England are on course to play New Zealand in the World Cup Final on Sunday.
Jason was given out caught down the leg-side, but he couldn’t believe it.
Dan Walker spoke about the moment on Twitter and said: “No joy for Roy. Shocker of a decision #ENGvAUS.”
Piers Morgan added it was a “shock decision”, he wrote: “Shocking decision against Roy – that was a wide not a wicket.
“Awful end to a brilliant innings. #ENGvAUS.”
