LONDON: England fast bowler Jofra Archer has made a strong pitch for the inclusion of Sussex team-mate Ollie Robinson in the England Test side for the upcoming summer.
"Hopefully Ollie Robinson will get his [England] chance this summer," Archer told thecricketer.com after the opening day's play between Sussex and Kent.
"We all know what he can do, he's a talented bowler and his stats prove that."
England start the summer with a two-Test series against New Zealand from June 2. That will be followed by a five-Test series against India from August 4 to September 14. Archer, who could not represent his franchise Rajasthan Royals during the now-postponed Indian Premier League (IPL) due to an elbow injury, demonstrated his return to full fitness on Friday, bowling a fiery spell for Sussex (2/29 in 13 overs) against Kent at Hove.
The duo of Archer and Robinson combined to take five Kent wickets, with the latter returning figures of 3/29.
The two took a wicket each in the second innings too. IANS
