Ravi Bopara's call-up to the England squad does not affect his availability for Essex in tonight's Friends Provident t20 fixture

Ravi Bopara has been called up to the England one-day squad to replace Ian Bell, who sustained a fracture of the fifth metatarsal of his left foot whilst fielding during the second NatWest Series one-day international against Bangladesh at Bristol.

Bopara is available to play for Essex Eagles in today’s Friends Provident t20 fixture against Somerset Sabres at Chelmsford.

He will join up with the England squad this evening in Birmingham ahead of tomorrow’s final NatWest Series match at Edgbaston.
