Lloyd Pope shot to prominence in Queenstown in 2018 when he demolished England with figures of 8 for 35, the best figures ever produced in an Under-19 World Cup. Nearly 25 years after England were first shocked by Shane Warne's Ball of the Century, another Australian legspinner, it seemed, had appeared to haunt them. Needing only 128 to win, England managed only 96.

Pope was instantly watchable: the straggly, flowing red hair, the plentiful confidence, and the legspin repertoire that has befuddled countless batsmen in Australian junior ranks - all of which helped earn the "Wizard" nickname.

He took up wristspin while "mucking around" with his dad in Cairns as an eight-year old, two years before the family moved to Adelaide. It was there that he broke into South Australia's Under-17 and Under-19 team and joined Kensington, the Adelaide grade club that was once the home not only of Don Bradman, but also Clarrie Grimmett, Australia's relentlessly wily legspinner of the 1920s and '30s.
