Ravi Bopara and Ryan ten Doeschate

Ryan ten Doeschate will captain Essex in all formats in 2017 after Ravi Bopara decided to stand down as limited-overs skipper to focus on his game.

England batsman Bopara, 31, led the club to the quarter-finals of the T20 Blast and the One-Day Cup this year.

“Ravi did an excellent job,” Ten Doeschate told the club website.
