Pope's first taste of being around the England squad came back in May when the hosts played Pakistan at Lord's, with the right-hander invited to spend the first day of the first Test with the team. Pope, who promised to prepare a proper gameplan if selected for the Test, also spoke about Sam Curran and how he gets confidence from watching him succeed. The 30-year-old left hander made 8 and 20 in the 31-run win over India in the first test at Edgbaston and also missed three catches.
"The selection panel believe that Ollie's performances and character suggest he is well-suited to worldwide cricket.' Pope has hit three championship hundreds this summer as well as an unbeaten half-century in England Lions" victory over India A.

Tendulkar, who made his debut against Pakistan as a 16-year-old in 1989 remembered his time as a rookie global. The only time that Pope has ventured above No 6 in first-class cricket was at No 5 for England Lions against India A last month.
The 20-year-old is in line to make his maiden global appearance at the home of cricket after replacing batsman Dawid Malan in the 13-man squad for the match.

Whatever style of bowling he is asked to confront first-up, Pope said that he doesn't suffer "massively" from nerves and this week he will practise his customary use of visualisation as a technique to overcome them. "I called my parents and had a quick chat with them and they were buzzing".
'I'm careful to not get too carried away but he has a plan of where he wants to evolve his game. You need to know what ball's coming down at you - you can't just premeditate an off-spinner with him. I didn't feel like it was the first game of the year. "Four to six region, I don't think there is a massive difference in the way you play".
