Profile

A talented, wristy strokeplayer, capable of opening the innings or batting in the middle order, Ravi Bopara has been a regular member of the England set-up for several years without ever making himself indispensable. He made his first international half-century in his fourth innings, at the 2007 World Cup, but suffered a disastrous debut Test series in Sri Lanka later that year. Three consecutive hundreds against West Indies in early 2009 rebalanced his ledger, only for a difficult Ashes experience to again cost him his place, and he remained on the fringes, despite continuing to make runs in county cricket. His form in limited-overs cricket, where his medium-pace bowling is also a useful option, has been more consistent, with a series of increasingly mature displays under the ODI captaincy of his Essex team-mate Alastair Cook.
