Varun Chopra, the England Lions batsman, has agreed a deal to return to Essex. Orleans Darkwa Jersey . Chopra, who is currently with Warwickshire, started his career with Essex and scored a century on Championship debut for the club as an 18-year-old. But he left in pursuit of more opportunities at the end of 2009 and has enjoyed seven largely successful seasons in Birmingham.He helped Warwickshire to the County Championship title in 2012 and was captain when they won the domestic T20 competition for the first time in 2014. He was the only man at the club to score 1000 runs in each Championship season between 2011 and 2013 and won a place in the Lions side as a result.He stepped down as captain before the 2016 season largely as he felt the responsibility was compromising his pursuit of an England place - aged 29, time is running out to achieve that ambition - and was replaced by Ian Bell.His relationship with the Warwickshire team management has sourced in recent times, however, and he has been left out of the white-ball sides for most of this season. The club confirmed a few weeks ago that they would not be offering him a new contract at the end of this season. He has now signed a three-year deal with Essex.I am delighted to be rejoining Essex, a club where I have fond memories from the early stages of my career, Chopra said. I look forward to returning as a more developed player and being part of a talented, ambitious and exciting team led by Chris Silverwood.As I enter a key stage in my career, I am intent on contributing in all formats of the game and in doing that, I hope to achieve my desire to play for England. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Warwickshire, the players and the fans at Edgbaston for their support over the past seven seasons.While Warwickshire have suggested Chopra did not completely buy into their long-term plans for the club, the policy of leaving him out in limited-overs cricket has hindered their progress this season. In the one T20 match he played, Chopra made an unbeaten 97 - the highest score by a non-overseas player in Warwickshires T20 history - to help Birmingham Bears to victory, yet he was then omitted and the club failed to qualify for the quarter-finals.Chris Silverwood, Essexs head coach, said: We are delighted Varun is re-joining us and coming back to the club where he started his professional career. His Division One experience will be invaluable to our batting line-up and younger players. It is great to have an Essex man coming back to the club and he will be a great addition for us moving forward. Jay Bromley Jersey . He was followed closely by David Clarkson, donning red, seconds later. Clarksons actions one night earlier, leaping off the bench in defence of Kessel during a pre-season game against the Buffalo Sabres, will cost him the first 10 games of the regular season. Davis Webb Jersey . PAUL, Minn. http://www.nygiantsproshop.com/authentic-eli-manning-jersey.html . At a Manhattan federal court hearing, attorney Jordan Siev said his law office has gotten more evidence nearly every day to support its lawsuit accusing MLB and Selig of going on a "witch hunt" to ruin Rodriguezs reputation and career. He said the defendants went "way over the line. NEW YORK -- Two weeks ago, the New York Rangers were rolling along, playing nearly unbeatable hockey and seemingly scoring goals at will.Now, theyre facing some adversity with a pair of key injuries and their first losing streak of the season.The Rangers won 10 of their first 13 to move into first place in the Metropolitan Division while averaging a league-leading 4.23 goals per game. They had won five straight, scoring at least five in each victory.Since then, the Rangers have totaled 21 goals -- including seven in a win at Vancouver last Tuesday -- while going 3-2-1 over the last six. Theyve followed that season-high scoring outburst with their first back-to-back losses, 4-2 at Columbus last Friday and 3-2 in a shootout at home against Florida on Sunday night.Now the first-place Rangers start a home-and home series at the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins -- just one point back in the Metropolitan -- on Monday night.New York captain Ryan McDonagh believes the team needs to attack the net and distract the opposing goalie to improve its scoring chances.Try to get on the inside a little bit more, take away the goalies eyes and hopefully get some rebound goals, deflection goals and make it a little bit tougher on the goalie, he said. Both nights the past two, (the goalie has) seen a lot of the pucks and thats a big difference there.Center Derek Stepan agreed with that assessment.Everyone is going to tell you that you have to get pucks and bodies to the net, you have to get screens, he said. Goaltenders are too good nowadays, (if) they see the puck they are going to make the save.During their strong start, the Rangers were rolling out four lines with a mix of speed and skill. They were getting contributions throughout the lineup, led by speedy free-agent addition Michael Grabner (11 goals). J.T. Miller leadss the team with 17 points, and McDonagh and fellow defenseman Brady Skjei are tops with 11 assists each. Mark Bavaro Jersey. Even though the output has slowed, they still began the week leading the NHL with 76 goals -- 16 more than the next-closest team -- and are the only team in the league with 14 players with 10 or more points. And of their 13 wins, eight have been by three or more goals.Though the Rangers got a point in the latest loss, the first time going beyond regulation this season, and moved into sole possession of first place in the division, that was no consolation to goalie Henrik Lundqvist.A point is always a point (but) we were looking to get two, he said.The Rangers scoring dip has been exacerbated by the loss of two key forwards in the last week. First, rookie right wing Pavel Buchnevich (four goals and four assists in 10 games) has missed the last four games due to back spasms and is out indefinitely. Then center Mika Zibanejad (four goals, 10 assists) broke his left leg sliding into the end boards early in overtime Sunday night. Hes expected to be out six to eight weeks.Every teams got injuries and we dont expect to be any different than anybody else, coach Alain Vigneault said. Every coach says in these moments its an opportunity for somebody else to get more ice time, and were confident whoever we decide to put in that spot will do the job for us.Vigneault didnt expect to call anyone up from AHL Hartford right away to fill the void, pointing to the teams 12 healthy forwards on the roster.Weve got some options there in the middle with Josh (Jooris) and (Brandon) Pirri that play in the middle, and Oscar (Lindberg) obviously, he said.---Follow Vin Cherwoo at www.twitter.com/VinCherwooAP ;Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Stitched JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
