Bopara averaged 15 in seven innings against Australia this summer
Essex batsman Ravi Bopara is adamant he will bounce back and earn an England recall after being dropped for the Ashes decider at The Oval.
The 24-year-old saw his place taken by Jonathan Trott, who marked his Test debut with a century as England looked to clinch a series win over Australia.
But Bopara told BBC Radio 5 live's Sportweeek: "I usually take things on the chin and get on with it.
"I am not a guy to make a fuss. I will come back a better player."
He responded to the disappointment of being dropped by smashing a double century for his county this week against Surrey.
"That's my way of answering," he said. "When I got to 100 I said to myself I am not getting off this pitch until I come back with 200."
Bopara managed an average of just 15 for England from seven innings against Australia, batting at number three in the first four Tests, but says his confidence has not been affected.
"I was surprised I went through seven innings without getting a massive score or a big score," he said. "I did feel as if there was a score around the corner."
Bopara, who hit three consecutive centuries against the West Indies earlier this year, says he still feels part of the England squad and is hopeful of winning a place on the forthcoming winter tour of South Africa.
"England selector Geoff Miller came to visit me this week in Colchester," Bopara explained. "We had a little chat and the conversation was that my form wasn't great and they had to look elsewhere.
"I can't complain about that - the only thing I can go out and do is score big runs and get back into the England side.
