Ollie Pope’s rapid transition from inventive T20 strokemaker to heavy Championship run scorer attracted the attention of England’s national selector Ed Smith when Pope was given a Test debut against India as a specialist batsman in the summer of 2018. To bat at No. 4 after only 15 first-class matches against such powerful opposition was a considerable challenge. He played only two Tests, but he had put down a marker, and at season’s end he had contributed 986 runs at an average of 70.43 to Surrey’s title-winning season, including a sparkling unbeaten 158 against Yorkshire at The Oval, a career-best, as well as some flashes of ambition in limited-overs formats.
