England’s Ravi Bopara speaks about how their ongoing tour of the West Indies is crucial for the team ahead of the ICC World Cup 2015 in Australia and New Zealand and emphasized that they will be looking to use it as valuable practice before the marquee event.


Bopara said that he was happy to have played 100 ODIs and was looking forward to playing more and scoring more runs for England.


Bopara also praised the tenacity of his side after they bounced back from defeat in the first One-Day International against West Indies to clinch the second ODI by three wickets.


Bopara put in a valuable 58-run stand for the eight wicket with skipper Chris Broad and steered home the English in what appeared to be a losing cause for the visitors.
