Ravi Bopara should be in the England test side ahead of Bairstow

Alex Massie is short on outrage so I’m going to suggest that the most-hated member of England’s Champions Trophy squad is ripe for a recall to the test side.

The fact that he’s registered a twelve ball duck today can only add to the internet’s anger about Bopara. Mind you with a FC batting average of 42 and a bowling average of 21 this season, he is clearly worse than Jonny Bairstow is at 6 for England.

Bopara for England!
