Ravi Bopara

Ravi Bopara

Ravinder Singh "Ravi" Bopara (born 4 May 1985) is an English cricketer who plays for Essex and England. Originally a top-order batsman, his developing medium pace bowling is making him a vital all-rounder and he has the best bowling figures for England in a Twenty20 International. Bopara has also played for Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League, and Chittagong Kings in the Bangladesh Premier League.

Bopara was first called up to the England One Day International team in 2007, before a difficult Test debut in Sri Lanka saw him dropped in early 2008 after a string of three ducks. He regained his place for a Test against the West Indies in the winter of 2008-09; on his return to the side, Bopara became the fifth batsman to score three consecutive Test centuries for England. Despite this success, during the 2009 Ashes Bopara again struggled and was dropped for the final Test of the series.
