England’s middle order batsman Ollie Pope was included in the England squad on Wednesday after the completion of the quarantine period before the first Test against India. At the same time, young opener Jacques Crawley suffered a wrist injury and could not practice.

The Pope, who is undergoing rehabilitation, went with the team on a tour of Sri Lanka although he was not part of the team. This helped them adapt to the conditions of the Rehab and subcontinent along with the support staff of the England team.

The England and Wales Cricket Board said in a statement, ‘Surrey batsman Oli Pope has been included in England’s Test team for the tour of India. Pope has fully recovered from his left shoulder injury in August 2020. England’s medical team is satisfied that they are available for selection.

He will bat at number 5 or 6 if selected for the first Test. On the other hand, Kraley suffered a wrist injury after slipping into the dressing room. The report of his scan is being awaited. The ECB said in a statement that he could not attend the practice session due to injury.
