Noted commentator David Lloyd claimed that Ollie Robinson reminded him of the great Angus Fraser and claimed that the Sussex closer will definitely “make” her testing debut this summer. Robinson, as it stands, has taken 25 wickets this season from the county with an impressive 13.80 average.
England’s rhythm bowling stocks are at an all-time high, and the same was visible in the team’s rest and rotation policy that allowed players to rest without compromising the quality of the team, and the quality of their depth of play. Bowling rhythm is getting stronger. . Both Olly Stone and Jofra Archer have had impressive test cricket appearances, and next in line appears to be Sussex’s Ollie Robinson.
A remarkably tall closer who throws with flawless precision, Robinson has secured nearly 200 wickets averaging less than 20 in the past three domestic seasons and has been breaking the door with his performances this season so far. So far in the 2021 County Championship, the 27-year-old has chosen 25 wickets in 4 games averaging 13.80, 9 of which came in a single inning against Glamorgan in mid-April.
Given that Robinson is also an extremely useful hitter (he’s hitting a 45.2 batting average this season), renowned commentator David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd has promoted the 27-year-old to make his test debut for England this summer.
“The last county player I want to mention is Ollie Robinson from Sussex. We’ve been talking about him for a while at Sky, but what’s interesting is that England players talk about him too, ”Lloyd wrote on his blog for Sky Sports.
“He reminds me of Angus Fraser, a strong, burly boy, he hits an awkward length, gets a bit of a bounce, not so fast but accurate. This summer he will play test cricket. “
Robinson has been the talk of the town in England when it comes to bowlers, but in terms of hitters, the cricketer who has stolen the spotlight is a forgotten man, Haseeb Hameed. Following his move to Nottinghamshire from Lancashire, Hameed has found himself in the top echelon of hitters and has remarkably racked up 450 runs at 56.25, his best returns in four years. Hameed is, in fact, just one of two hitters to have faced more than 1,000 balls on the season and the youngster, so far this season, has displayed elite tendencies that once made him the best starter in the game. country.
Lloyd noted that a move to good hitting grounds in Nottingham has helped Hameed, but insisted the 24-year-old should now be racking up as many runs as he can and get a spot on the team for the Ashes.
“Speaking of which, you hope that Haseeb Hameed has turned the corner. He moved from Lancashire counties to Nottinghamshire, I don’t know if that was the right thing to do, but he seems to be settled in his own way and that’s very important. When I have observed him, I have thought that he is too nervous with the fold and too analytical. Sometimes you have to smell the coffee and be a lot more relaxed in the fold than I’ve ever seen from it.
“The move may have done him a lot of good because you can’t help the fact that he probably moved from the best hitting band in the country. His goal now is to keep scoring runs, scoring centuries, and aiming for an Ashes spot. Anything else in the way is a bonus. You have the tools; I wonder if you’ve had the temper in the past.
“He needs to find his own feet and it looks like he did when he moved house. It’s not his fault or Lancashire’s and eventually the player will emerge, ”Lloyd said.
