Pope & Virdi In Lions Squad For India

Published: 18th December, 2018

Ollie Pope and Amar Virdi will join the England Lions on their tour of India in January & February.

The trip will see the Lions play five 50-over matches before two four-day Tests against India A.

Pope has been named in both the 50-over and Test squads while Virdi is in line just for the two red-ball matches in Wayanad.

This comes off the back of a memorable 2018 for both as they helped Surrey to Specsavers County Championship glory with Pope claiming PCA Young Player of the Year.

He has now made nine appearances, spanning across all three formats, for the Lions and also made his senior England debut in August’s Lord’s Test match.

Virdi has played in four U19 Test matches and attended several training camps with the Lions but is yet to make his debut at that level.
