England batsman Ollie Pope has been ruled out for up to four months after dislocating his left shoulder during the #raisethebat third Test against Pakistan at the Ageas Bowl.

The injury occurred on the fourth day with Pope sliding to save a boundary off the second ball of Stuart Broad’s first over of the day and left the pitch immediately.

Pope underwent an MRI scan in London on Wednesday and was reviewed by a Consultant on Thursday. The Surrey player will have surgery on the injured shoulder in the next couple of weeks and will commence a rehabilitation programme with the Surrey and England medical teams.

It is hoped that Pope will return in time for England’s winter tours of Sri Lanka and India starting in the early part of 2021.
