Pope has kept England's two Test wins in Pakistan, but he still wants to bat.
Pope, England's number three, kept his gloves on in the first Test because Ben Foakes was unwell and the tourists needed an extra bowler.
Pope's main priority is to keep running.
I would love to make that my own. My main focus will be that.
Pope had only kept the gloves on in one Test in New Zealand.
He scored a century in the firstinnings but had a mixed game with the gloves. He failed to move for an edge when England were trying to win the game on the final day.
He acrobatically caught James Anderson on the leg side.
Pope made 60 with the bat and had a largely error-free game with the gloves in the second Test in Pakistan. His take down the leg side to hold Saud Shakeel off the bowling of Mark Wood was crucial in England's win.
I didn't think I'd be staying here. Pope didn't think it was on his radar. With the guys getting sick last week, I was happy to take it on. The experience has been enjoyable.
I can improve. I wasn't going to compare myself to Foakesy as a keeper, but I took my chances.
Foakes has been called the best keeper in the world many times.
Foakes' omission from the team that played in Pakistan was not a sign of his future prospects, according to Ben Stokes.
The balance of England's team is likely to change for the two Tests in New Zealand in February or Foakes could return if they make changes for the third Test against Pakistan in Karachi.
Pope said that Foakes has been helping him with his glovework, and that he is happy to stay in the third Test.
Pope said that he was one of his best friends and that he was great to learn from.
We may go with a more regular team in New Zealand. It's not for me to make that decision.
England have won a Test series in Pakistan for the first time in 22 years.
Pakistan have never lost a home Test series by more than two games.
