CURRENT MATCH: Derbyshire vs Sussex CCC
Ollie Robinson awarded county cap

Ollie Robinson has become the 147th Sussex player to be awarded his county cap.

Club captain Ben Brown presented the seamer with his cap during the tea interval on day one of the Specsavers County Championship match against Middlesex at The 1st Central County Ground.

It polished off a truly remarkable afternoon for the 25 year old who took 8 for 32 in the opening session of the match.

That takes his total number of wickets for Sussex to 249 in 82 matches across all formats (213 first-class, 13 List A, 23 T20).

Commenting on the decision to cap Robinson, Sussex head coach Jason Gillespie said: "We’re absolutely delighted as a club to award Ollie his cap. He certainly satisfies the criteria with his performances for Sussex. He’s led our attack for a couple of years now.

"He keeps learning and growing his game, and when he steps over that line he’s a real competitor.

“We’re very proud of how Ollie’s career is evolving. Hopefully he can put in a lot more wonderful performances for Sussex and push for higher honours."
