England and India were left frustrated at Lord's with persistent rain delaying the start of the second Test.
However with India's batsmen severely tested by England's seamers in the first Test, and England usually more comfortable picking a seam-dominated attack, it would not be surprise should Woakes ultimately be named in the final XI, his overall chances of selection perhaps slightly lower than Moeen's but not by much.
Virat Kohli and his men though might now have to deal with the seam and swing of the English pacers, under overcast conditions.
England skipper Joe Root has said that their victory in the seesawing first Test, despite being "not at our best", has energised the hosts with confidence as they prepare to take on India at Lord's on Thursday.
'But it's about backing it up now, looking for consistency in back-to-back games, and this is an opportunity to do that'.
Worst yet to come: David Gower looks dejected after losing the Lord's Test to India in 1986.
"When the wicket wears off, the spinners can come into play as well", Kohli said.
Pope comes in place of dropped Dawid Malan, which means England will have a new slip cordon in place.
Root confirmed Wednesday that Pope would bat at number four but that England would delay a decision on whether to play Ali or Woakes instead of Stokes until the morning of the match, with the uncapped Jamie Porter released from the 13-man squad.
That said, given the nature of the pitch at Lord's and England spin troubles, the visitors might play Kuldeep Yadav alongside Ashwin.
It will be interesting to see who England will turn to in the absence of Stokes.
In both the innings of the first Test which the tourists lost by 31 runs, all the batsmen, apart from skipper Virat Kohli failed.
Yet this season has seen Pope make 684 runs for Championship leaders Surrey at an average of 85.5, including three centuries. The left-hander managed a total of 39 runs in Edgbaston and got out in a similar fashion in both the innings.
Earlier, ahead of the Ireland T20Is too Arjun was spotted bowling at Team India nets when Kohli and his boys were in London.
But he was wary of playing an extra batsman at Lord's.
