ENG vs NZ: England paceman Ollie Robinson set for lengthy spell on the sidelines
ENG vs NZ: England paceman Ollie Robinson is expected to miss at least the next three Tests due to a back issue.
Robinson has not played for England since the Ashes final in January, when he made the last of his nine Test matches, and he missed the subsequent tour of the West Indies due to back spasms.
His injury issues, as well as a positive case of Covid-19, have lingered throughout the English season, and reports in the British media say that the most recent scan was inconclusive.
The 28-year-old Sussex fast had an injection to help with the agony. And will be out for at least another three weeks.
He’ll probably miss the series finale at Headingley and the one-off Test against India at Edgbaston in July.
Several England quicks, including Jofra Archer, Saqib Mahmood, Matt Fisher. And Olly Stone, have been sidelined by stress fractures in recent months. But Robinson is not believed to be suffering from a similar condition.
And there’s still a chance he’ll be ready for the three-Test series against South Africa. In August and September at home.
