Robbo just 'knew'

Kanishkaa Balachandran

Neil Manthorp in Supercricket pays a warm tribute to Peter Robinson, the cricket writer who passed away due to cancer.

He was sharper than any of us, often wittier and certainly more argumentative. Forget crosswords or Sudoku for mental exercise, on long tours to India or England we would stay in shape by disagreeing with Robbo on a subject we knew he felt strongly about. I never saw anyone win - but it was fun trying.
