Profile

Earlier in his career, Robin Martin-Jenkins was occasionally been mentioned as a potential England allrounder, but he has never quite produced the performances to merit elevation to that level. The son of The Times newspaper's cricket correspondent Christopher Martin-Jenkins, Robin played in the same Radley College XI as Andrew Strauss and Ben Hutton and soon established himself in the Sussex side. He announced his decision to quit first-class cricket in the middle of the 2010 season, to pursue his new career as a Geography and RS teacher at Hurstpierpoint College. He is a regular contributor to the Wisden Cricketer magazine.
