Pope has averaged 85 for Surrey in first-class cricket this season and has scored runs for England Lions
India U-19 team member and rising left-arm pacer Arjun Tendulkar was seen bowling to skipper Virat Kohli in the nets ahead of the second Test against England at the Lord's Cricket Ground. England will make a last-minute decision on that after seeing the pitch, which was kept under a tarpaulin sheet for much of yesterday amid fears that... The visitors' bowling unit impressed, picking 20 wickets for the fourth successive time on the road since the start of the year, but their batting, barring captain Kohli, was a big letdown.
It proved beyond the tourists, despite Kohli making 51 to follow his first-innings 149 - the star batsman's maiden Test century on English soil.
Meanwhile England have revealed that new boy Ollie Pope will bat at No.4 on his debut.
England have outstretched the selection for this week's match at Lord's against India to 20 year old Surrey batsman Ollie Pope, axing the struggling Dawid Malan.

After the pulsating drama of last week's opener in Birmingham, expectations for Lord's remain high, but with a series fascinatingly poised, five days of glorious sunshine forecast and a bountiful crop of intrigue both on and off the pitch, you wouldn't bet against it delivering. "He's very mature for a young man", said Root.

But Arun said Jasprit Bumrah was "out of contention", the paceman still sidelined after missing the first Test with the broken thumb he suffered during a Twenty20 global against Ireland in June.
