Essex County Cricket Club are pleased to announce that top-order batsman, Varun Chopra, has signed a contract extension and will stay with the Club until the end of the 2020 season.

Chopra, 32, is an Essex Academy graduate and has made 69 first-class, 57 List A and 41 T20 appearances for the Club since making his debut in 2006.

The homegrown batsman was the leading run-scorer for the Eagles in this year’s Royal London One-Day Cup, notching 421 runs at an impressive average of 84.20.

Chopra said: “I’m excited to extend my contract and I love playing for the Club. I’ve been fortunate enough to win trophies and create memories here at Essex that will last a lifetime, and hopefully we can create some more in the not too distant future.”

Head Coach Anthony McGrath is pleased to see Varun extend his contract and said: “Varun is a brilliant batsman and he has scored plenty of important runs for us over the years. He was one of the shining lights from our One-Day Cup campaign and we’re looking forward to seeing more from him in the future.”
