Pope only made his first-class debut in March a year ago and has been called into the squad on the back of a mere 15 matches, while he has never batted in the top five in County Championship cricket.
Meanwhile, after a poor show in the opening Test match against England, the Indian batsmen would like to rectify their mistakes and apply themselves diligently when India will face the hosts in the second match of the five-match series, starting on Thursday.
20-year-old Ollie Pope has the highest average in the 2018 County Championship of anyone to record more than two innings (85.5 across 10 knocks); he replaces Dawid Malan who has only managed an average of 19.9 over the 11 Test innings he recorded in 2018. I do think that a result is still possible if the rain stays away - and that's a big if.
"Ollie Pope will come in and bat at four", said Root. The former India star is the leading Test and ODI run-scorer of all time, and is widely regarded as one of the game's greatest-ever batsmen.
Neither side made 300 in the match, England posting 287 before India replied with 274 in the first innings. The uncapped Essex seam bowler Jamie Porter again misses out from the squad of 13.
India struggled against the swinging ball, with England finding it hard to combat Ravichandran Ashwin's off-spin.
Root, frustratingly run out for 80 in England's first innings at Edgbaston, said it was important to put the side's batting struggles into perspective.
We feel Shikhar Dhawan too could make way for C Pujara, who was surprisingly left out in the first Test. Ajinkya Rahane scored a first innings hundred to help India recover from 145 for seven, Bhuvneshwar Kumar took six wickets in the first innings and Ishant Sharma seven in the second as England wilted against the short ball.
Despite India's overall failed batting effort at Edgbaston, bowling coach Bharat Arun ruled out playing an extra batsman here.
But Arun said Jasprit Bumrah was "out of contention", the paceman still sidelined after missing the first Test with the broken thumb he suffered during a Twenty20 worldwide against Ireland in June.
