Ravi Bopara is one of those English cricketers who are considered a stalwart in the domestic circuit but failed to blossom at the International level. This is evident from the fact that he averages 31.94, 30.62 and 28.44 with the bat in 13 Tests, 120 ODIs and 30 T20Is. In addition to this, an influx of extremely talented white-ball players pushed him out of the national framework.
Nevertheless, the London born cricketer has no plans to give up on his dream of donning the English jersey again. Helping Essex to win this year’s domestic T20 title by amassing 291 runs at 48.50, Bopara showed his batting prowess before moving to Sussex.
Bopara admitted that England is filled with a plethora of talent which toughens up the competition. Nevertheless, it also motivates him to take his game to the next level. With two T20 World Cups on the horizon, in 2020 in Australia and 2021 in India, the 34-year old believes that it is the right time to perform consistently and grab the attention of the selectors.
