Ollie Robinson notched up his maiden first-class century on his Sussex debut in an innings driven by the desire to prove people wrong. With no 11 Matthew Hobden, on a sunny day in Chester-Le-Street, he put on 164 runs for the final wicket against Durham and surpassed a 107-year record for the best tenth-wicket partnership for Sussex. His notable feat came ten months ago his contract with Yorkshire was terminated due to "a number of unprofessional actions", involving poor timekeeping and less than perfect attendance at training sessions.
Robinson had played second XI cricket for Hampshire and Essex before signing for Sussex on a short-term deal. His century, and a recognition of his seam bowling qualities, won him a season-long contract. He went on to take 46 wickets in his debut season, with a best of 6 for 33 coming in a win against Warwickshire at Hove and also had the versatility to bowl offspin as well as his normal seam-up style. Such bowling moments were few and far between in the Championship the following year even though Sussex had slipped into Division Two.
He is the stepson of England's assistant coach Paul Farbrace, who initially has brought him to Yorkshire where his skills as a death bowler in T20 cricket won respect.
Also, what is the record for the number of sixes hit in a T20 match?
