Bopara Victorious With Northern Warriors


Ravi Bopara followed up his APL T20 win with Balkh Legends by claiming his second trophy in as many months, with his Northern Warriors side sealing T10 League glory in Sharjah on Sunday night thanks to a 22-run win over Pakhtoons.

Bopara’s side reached the final by winning two out of their three Group B games and by beating Maratha Arabians in an eliminator game, having lost to Pakhtoons in the final qualifier a few days before.

In the final itself, Bopara wasn’t required to bat with his side reaching 140 for 3 after the 60 balls. In the only over he bowled, he took the wicket of Muhammad Kaleem and finished with figures of 1 for 11.

Ravi only batted once in the tournament mainly due to the firepower of the top order, which included, Lendl Simmons, Nicholas Pooran, Andre Russell and Rovman Powell. With the ball he took an impressive 6 wickets for 96 runs over the 6 matches.

Following the news that Bopara has recently signed a new contract with Essex County Cricket Club, the crowd at The Cloudfm County Ground can look forward to seeing Ravi in action next year.
