8. Ravi Bopara
Ravi Bopara was a regular member of the English squad during the late 2000s and early 2011s. He is an all-rounder who could hold the middle order together and bowl in like a medium pacer. Bopara, because of his ability to hit the ball cleanly and bowl in a couple of overs, was a valuable asset for any team he played. But, he failed to play for the national and IPL franchises consistently.
Bopara has played 24 IPL games so far. With a run tally of 531 and a poor strike rate of 117.22, he was never able to cement his place as an overseas player. Adding on, the emergence of various international T20 stars meant that Bopara had to warm the benches. Eventually, he went unsold in the auctions.
Bopara has taken 11 wickets in 24 IPL games so far. But, his PSL stats are decent, this is mainly because he has scored 775 runs with an average of 28.70. Adding on, he has picked 15 wickets in his PSL career. The most attractive part of his PSL career is his best bowling figures of 6/16.
