Ravi Bopara promoted in Batting order

Ravi Bopara got the chance to bat slightly up in the batting order in the first game of the Carlton Mid One Day International Series against Australia in Sydney today, but, he could not make the most of it as he perished just at the score of 13 to the left arm spinner Xavier Doherty.

Bopara was positive to start with as he played a lofted cover drive and a flick shot to get him going.

He tried to continue the aggression against the spinner too and he cannot be criticized for his choice of shot there on that ball because it was there to be hit.
