Ollie Pope has been in tremendous form scoring 684 runs in Division One of the County Championship at 85.50
In the series opener, England claimed a 31 run win against the touring party.
He had 134 runs from his previous 10 Test innings in England, but on this tour, he overhauled that mark with a 149-run knock in the first innings in Birmingham. "As long as we cross the line, that is the only thing that matters".
The management could also replace underperforming opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan with Pujara and ask Rahul to open the innings with Murali Vijay. "Being in the right mindset is a very individual thing and as captain you can only have meetings and chats which we do on a regular basis", he said. Ajinkya Rahane scored a first innings hundred to help India recover from 145 for seven, Bhuvneshwar Kumar took six wickets in the first innings and Ishant Sharma seven in the second as England wilted against the short ball. The story of the second innings was more or less the same as Kohli top-scored with 51 runs in 93 balls. "With the surface as it is, having looked at it today, we're going to leave it another 24 hours and then make a decision in the morning. We need a little bit more composure there and that, as a batting unit, we have discussed". "So that would have been deflating for him, and he will look to square the ledger when he comes back to Australia", Waugh added. "But we only need to bring down the margin of error and beyond that we don't need to worry too much".
"Ollie Pope will come in and bat at four", said Root.
There was a lot of talk about the inclusion of seamer Jamie Porter ahead of the first Test but Captain Root preferred Sam Curran and the player delivered a Man-of-the-Match performance.
Root, who will be batting in the pivotal number three position, added: "I know that might be seen as quite a big jump". "It is not like I feel bad that I got runs and we couldn't get across the line", he said.
Pope only made his first-class debut in March past year and has been called into the squad on the back of a mere 15 matches, while he has never batted in the top five in County Championship cricket.
'He has reached a 1000 first class runs in just 15 matches and is the first division's stand-out batsman this season with 684 runs at 85. Joe Root and his men would start confident thanks to their win in the first Test.
"I think Steve Smith is probably the hungriest batsman but he's obviously not playing for 12 months, so Kohli really is the premier batsman in world cricket".
Samsung Galaxy Note9: availability, prices, goodies
Samsung has borrowed from the Galaxy S9 for the camera on the Note 9, which means it should be an upgrade on the Note 8's snapper. That's relevant because while the software is similar now, the Note 9 will nearly certainly be supported with updates for longer.
