The England and Cricket Board (ECB) has named the Sussex pacer Ollie Robinson ahead of the second Test match against Pakistan on Saturday.
Robinson will now be joining the England team for the second Test match against Pakistan starting from August 13-17 at Ageas Bowl, Southampton.
The County cricket is also underway and now Robinson will have to pull himself out of the Sussex side and he won’t be able to participate in the upcoming Bob Willis Trophy clash with the Kent.
The ECB informed the fans on Twitter on Saturday by tweeting: “Seamer Ollie Robinson has been withdrawn from Sussex’s squad for their Bob Willis Trophy match against Kent. He will join the bio-secure bubble at the Ageas Bowl as part of England men’s behind closed doors training group ahead of the second Test against Pakistan.: #ENGvPAK
