Profile

Oliver Robinson notched up his maiden first-class century on Sussex debut. 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. He 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 contract until the end of the 2015 season. 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.
