NEXT MATCH: Durham Cricket vs Sussex Sharks

Ollie Robinson named in England squad for Test matches against South Africa

Sussex seamer Ollie Robinson has been selected for the England squad ahead of the Test series against South Africa this month.

England Men's selection panel have named a 14-strong squad for the first two LV= Insurance Test matches starting at Lord's on 17th August.

Ollie returned to the Sussex team in spectacular fashion last week against Nottinghamshire in the LV= Insurance County Championship, taking 9 wickets at Trent Bridge.

Commenting on the selected squad, ECB Men's Performance Director, Mo Bobat, said:

"After an excellent start to the summer under Brendon McCullum and Ben Stokes, we're looking forward to an exciting Test series against a strong South Africa side.

"The selectors have picked a squad for the first two Tests at Lord's and Emirates Old Trafford with continuity in mind.

"It's good to get Ollie Robinson back in the mix after his recent injury. He will continue his progress by playing for the Lions against South Africa in a four-day match at Canterbury next week."

The England Lions tour match against South Africa will be played at The Spitfire Ground, Canterbury, starting on the 9th August.
