Ollie Robinson put himself into the reckoning for a Test recall with four cheap wickets on his return from injury for Sussex against Division Two leaders Nottinghamshire.

Robinson, playing his first game for two months following a back injury, removed Haseeb Hameed, Ben Duckett and Joe Clarke, all in single figures, and later bowled opener Ben Slater. He finished with four for 44 from 16 overs.

The England management are said to be happier with his attitude towards fitness, having publicly called him out towards the end of the Ashes in January, and are likely to select him for the Lions’ four-day game against the South Africans at Canterbury, starting on August 9. The first Test at Lord’s begins eight days later.

Test opener Zak Crawley’s struggles continued as he fell for a 27-ball duck for Kent against Lancashire at Old Trafford. He has now gone 13 first-class innings without a half-century.

Elsewhere in the county championship, opener Nick Browne made an unbeaten 234 as Essex piled up 505 for nine against Somerset at Chelmsford, and England No 3 Ollie Pope scored 65 for Division One leaders Surrey against Warwickshire at The Oval.

Meanwhile, it was announced yesterday that England will host the 2026 women’s T20 World Cup.
