Profile

Ravi Bopara is a right-handed English batsman who rose through the ranks at the under-19 level. After Monty Panesar, he is the second Sikh to play for England. His started his international journey through one-day games and impressed everybody with some remarkable knocks during the 2007 World Cup. An aggressive batsman by nature, Bopara is also capable of playing steadily in a crisis situation. Genuinely a specialist batsman, the Sikh has also improved a lot with his medium-pace bowling skills. He is also an athletic fielder in the outfield. He will be best remembered for his fighting innings of 52 runs against Sri Lanka in the 2007 World Cup. In June that year, he registered his highest first-class score of 229 runs against Northamptonshire. This proved his ability to play the longest format of the game as well. Injury ruled him out of the inaugural World Twenty20 that year, although he was selected to be part of that squad. He was finally called into the Test team for the tour to Sri Lanka in December 2007 but had a poor series and was subsequently dropped. Though he had not come to terms with the Test format at the highest level, he was still a brisk scorer in one-day internationals. This was proved when he scored 201 runs off 138 balls in the quarter-finals of the Friends Provident Trophy; this was only the eighth instance of a double century in the history of List A cricket. He was selected as part of the England squad to play in the Stanford Super Series in Antigua, where England lost the $1 million prize money to the Stanford All Stars. However, his form was enough for the selectors to hand him an Increment Contract. In early 2009, Bopara was bought by IPL franchise Kings XI Punjab and again his brisk-scoring ways helped the side achieve much success in the early stages of the tournament. After an impressive ton in the warm-up game, he was selected to play the fourth Test against West Indies. He scored three consecutive first innings tons in that series becoming only the fifth England player to do so. He was then selected to play his first Ashes series but could not make it count in the first two Tests.
