For someone who loves bowling himself, personally think it's poor of Travis Head to continue bowling Pope when clearly he's not up to it. He'll be psychologically damaged by the time he actually develops some consistency.

I wondered this myself, but more on role and field placing. I'm sure Pope is just following instructions to throw it up and attack, but leaving some of those leg side boundaries completely open, and not have two back deep at square leg and mid wicket, for example, was a tactical error IMO.

No doubt Pope bowls some ripper balls and this pitch may not be offering much, but have to help mitigate those bad balls and not go for 4.5 an over
