Profile

By the time he scored a century on Championship debut in 2006, Varun Chopra had long been viewed as an opening batsman with a bright future. Only one man, Steven Peters, had scored a Championship century for Essex younger than Chopra's 18-years and 338 days, while he had also impressed as captain of England U19. He led England to a series whitewash over Sri Lanka in 2005 and was hailed by Graham Gooch as "a smart lad who works hard at his game and has a natural eye for a ball." Even an 11-0 defeat in Bangladesh did little to dim his promise.
