England batter sustained a left thigh muscle injury while playing for Surrey in the Vitality Blast
“The ECB and Surrey fitness teams will work together to deliver Pope’s rehabilitation with a focus for him to be available to return for the first Test against India.”
That first Test starts on August 4 in Nottingham.
While Pope has not reached 35 in his 15 most recent Test innings, he was highly likely to retain his spot in England’s Test side as he is seen as perhaps the most talented young first-class batter in the English game.
