England to ordain Pope at Lord’s as Malan axed

Woakes in for Stokes as England make two changes

Watch England's second Test against India at Lord's, live on Sky Sports Cricket from 10am on Thursday.

The English team has made 2 big changes to the winning XI as Ollie Pope has been called up to England's squad in place of Dawid Malan.

"The selection panel believe Ollie's performances and character suggest he is well suited to worldwide cricket". The 30-year-old also dropped a chance to dismiss Virat Kohli in the first innings and the visitors' skipper went on to score 149.

While Stokes faces a court hearing this coming week in Bristol, Malan's form has dipped away after a promising Ashes and has been shunted away. Ollie Pope represents Surrey scored 684 runs in county cricket with 3 centuries at an average of 85.50.

The dry conditions will nearly certainly be conducive to two spinners with Moeen replacing Stokes playing alongside Adil Rashid but if England go that way and pick Pope at four in Malan's place then they will look a seamer short with Curran the only one available to bowl after Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad.

He picked six wickets including Kohli's wicket in the second innings.

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. He also notched up three centuries and a half-century with a highest score of 158. The 20-year-old has scored 1012 runs so far in his 15-match Country career at an average of 63.25. Moeen Ali and James Porter, who were released after the start of opening Test were also included in the squad.

"Dawid Malan drops out of the squad for Lord's", said Smith.

It remains possible that, in the unlikely event his court case should be adjourned for any reason early in the week, Stokes could be added to the squad. "Stokes is unavailable, but Woakes, with some extra matches and practices, can now return to the England squad after injury", said Smith.
