Many believe Ravi Bopara’s international career is over now with him not being even in the limited-over plans of England anymore.
But, the Essex man himself has not given up on it at all.
According to the all rounder, as long as he is active in the game, his aspirations will always be to win an England recall.
Bopara actually turned out to be one of the scapegoats for England’s below par show in the One Day International World Cup played Down Under earlier this year.
He was not the worst performer in his team by any means, but, he lost his place post the showpiece competition.
And, now, his comeback seems to be going to take some time as the young chaps coming in performed pretty well in the New Zealand series which England won 3-2.
When asked what the main difference between the England of World Cup and this New England has been, Bopara said, “It’s just the mindset. There has been more clarity in the minds of the players now. They are pretty certain what kind of approach they are supposed to show out there. It was probably missing when we were in Australia/New Zealand at the start of the year.”
