Ollie Pope.

Ollie Pope will make his England debut batting in the number four position for the second Test against India at Lord’s.

The 20-year-old Surrey batsman is a direct replacement for Middlesex left-hander Dawid Malan, dropped from contention after modest returns this summer.

England captain Joe Root said at his pre-match press conference: “Ollie Pope will come in and bat at four.”

Essex seamer Jamie Porter misses out while Root has yet to confirm whether Moeen Ali or Chris Woakes will replace all-rounder Ben Stokes, who misses out as a result of his ongoing court case.
