Ravi Bopara turns down IPL offer

English cricketer Ravi Bopara turns down an IPL offer to play for his country. He is not centrally contracted by the English board and is free to play for IPL. He turned down a six figure dollar amount to continue playing for Essex and hoping to be selected to the national team. He was part of the T20 world cup team for England but could not play because of an injury. Bopara says IPL offer is tempting.
Bopara should be praised for his single-minded goal of getting into the national team.
