Records and Facts

As Sussex’s team hired Ollie Robinson, it proved to be an extremely successful decision for both Ollie and Sussex Cricket Team.

Robinson began by playing a Second XI match for Sussex and after that, he became a part of a team that would be competing at the County Championship. The match against Durham was a first-class debut for Ollie and he excelled! In the match, Robinson, batting at number nine, scored a century in a Sussex record-breaking tenth-wicket partnership with Matt Hobden of 164. By managing to do this, Ollie became the first Sussex player in 95 years to score a century on his County Championship debut.

His 2015 season was also a successful one where he managed to take 46 championship wickets and the average was 24.71. He was afterwards nominated for the Breakthrough Player Award and also won the Sussex Young Player of the Year award. His amazing collaboration with Sussex was crowned with a 3-year contract recently.
