Ollie Pope was kicking himself after falling short of a dream hundred at his home ground as England missed the chance to bat India out of the fourth LV= Insurance Test. Pope produced the innings of the match on day two at the Kia Oval, batting smartly and securely for 81 in his side’s 290 all out. But he is used to going further at a ground he knows better than any other. Of the nine times he has passed 50 here for Surrey, he has gone on to celebrate a century on seven occasions. Had he gone big again, it may have left India with nowhere to turn.
