"Against this Indian side, where they bowl a lot of spin, I think there's not actually a massive difference", Pope claimed.
Pope made his Surrey first-team debut in the County Championship in August 2017 against Middlesex at The Oval, in the infamous match that was abandoned after a crossbow was sacked on to the pitch after tea during the final day's play.
India also made two changes, with Cheteshwar Pujara coming in after struggling opener Shikhar Dhawan was dropped and left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who caused England problems in the preceding white-ball series, replacing paceman Umesh Yadav.
Pope received his England cap from former England captain Alec Stewart, his director of cricket at Surrey. His first-class statistics are extremely impressive as he averages 63 in the 15 FC matches for Surrey with 4 centuries. Handed the wicketkeeping gloves and batting at five, Pope struck an unbeaten 50 of 71 balls in the second innings - and took three catches in the match to help the Lions pull off an impressive win.

Asked too if India may prove reliant on their captain Virat Kohli throughout the series, the England coach agrees - but points out England too have a nucleus of proven batsmen, alongside others yet to truly establish themselves. They have now replaced Stokes with fellow pace-bowling all-rounder Woakes, who missed out on a Test at his Warwickshire home ground because of concerns he had not then bowled enough overs following a return from a knee injury. Just knowing I'm not one of the first ones to play when I'm young or after not a huge amount of games.
"He wants to be in the fight - just like his brother", said Bayliss. Just being on your own two feet and getting to know your strengths and weaknesses, learning from your dismissals and the games you play well in and score runs in.

Smashdown mode forces players to choose new characters, as each elimination removes previously selected fighters from the options. Final Smashes now have a meter that can be filled to perform a slightly weaker version of the attack than the Smash Ball allows.
"The selection panel believe Ollie's performances and character suggest he is well suited to global cricket". He has reached a 1,000 first-class runs in just 15 matches and is the first division's stand-out batsman this season with 684 runs at 85.
"Everyone always says if you're good enough, your old enough", said Pope.
"I'm surprised but hopefully counties will still keep doing it", said Pope.
"I'm sure that they'll be going away working out how they can play it - as we're working on how to play the off-spin".
