Oliver John Douglas Pope, a name that popped out from nowhere and surprised many. In an act of daring or desperation by the ECB, as it was put out by the English media, a young 20-year old was selected for the national team during India's tour of England in 2018. The young boy, short in stature, known for his cuts and pulls enjoyed an amazing season with Surrey where he led the Division One batting charts after scoring 684 runs at an average of 85.5. His outstanding form didn't go unnoticed and he soon found the backing of the selectors and his skipper, Joe Root, who himself started his Test career at a tender age.

Innovative strokeplay has been the highlight of Pope's batting and his List A and T20 strike rate speaks volumes about his hard-hitting prowess. Owing to the consistent failure of Dawid Malan, Pope was handed a golden opportunity and he went on to become one of the youngest to debut for England at number 4.
