Surrey youngster Ollie Pope's marathon effort against Glamorgan has reaped a sterling 248 in the County Championship encounter at Old Trafford. Glamorgan posted a formidable 672 declared in the first innings of the match and a remarkable daddy hundred was the need of the hour if Surrey aspired to be on an even keel. Pope rose to the occasion with a herculean knock comprising 33 boundaries and a six. It has come at a frenetic pace too, with the strike rate hovering in the late seventies.
