England batsman Ollie Pope is set to undergo a scan on his left shoulder, which he hurt while fielding on day four of the final Test against Pakistan here. The 22-year-old Surrey batsman had been sidelined for three months after he underwent surgery on the same shoulder last year.
Pope had dived to save a boundary off a Stuart Broad delivery and had to leave the field immediately with James Bracey cominf on as a substitute fielder in his place.
“He’s understandably banged his shoulder again, so he will go for the scan on that, and we’ll assess from there, really,” head coach Chris Silverwood was quoted as saying by ‘ESPNCricinfo’.
“We’ll know more once he’s had the scan,” he added. Pope scored three runs in England’s first innings and was dismissed by spinner Yasir Shah. England went on to pile up 583 for eight runs before declaring the innings.
