Ollie Pope poised for return ahead of first Test in India



Jofra Archer insists he’s ready to go after his break with ‘a very long year’ ahead

Ollie Pope looks set to be added to England’s Test squad in time to play the first Test of the series against India.

Pope, the 23-year-old middle-order batsman, suffered a dislocated shoulder while fielding in the final Test of the English summer in August which subsequently required surgery. It was the second time he had suffered a dislocation to the shoulder.

While Pope has been part of the touring party in Sri Lanka and India, he has not been an official part of the squad. Instead, he has been able to continue his rehabilitation with England’s support staff and acclimatise to conditions in Asia.
