Robbo has been rested for the game, having played in all three games. I'm not sure Maurice Tate would have been rested after bowling 100 overs, but there you go.

There's still no Head either - and no word when he's arriving (it was originally after two games).

Sussex team

Ben Brown, Jamie Atkins, Will Beer, Jack Carson, Tom Clark, Henry Crocombe, George Garton, Tom Haines, Stuart Meaker, Ali Orr, Delray Rawlins, Joe Sarro, Aaron Thomason, Stiaan van Zyl

Lancashire are currently top of the group - wheel loose

***MODS*** I meant Lancashire in title, can someone amend

Based on the photos I've seen of Maurice Tate, I'm not convinced he put as much effort into each delivery as Robinson does.

Notwithstanding that, I think I'm right in saying he was the only player to do the 1000runs 100wickets double in a non-English season, which is a fun fact to start the day with.

At least Anderson isn't back until Lancs' next game, small mercies and everything.

I thought Head was always joining us after the first 4 games and I thought that was in The Argus/BBC/Cricinfo recently

The title may have been wrong... I fear the rest of it is spot on.

I'm sure I saw somewhere that he was due in from 6 May so would be available for the Kent game?

Dont normally follow it that closely - but interested to see how Sarro does in this after coming up from the Academy. (You'll understand why Gwylan) :wink:

Yes. He's been fast-tracked into the squad, he only got his contract this week. Looking forward to seeing Frankie make his debut in four or five years time :wink:

He also holds the record for bowling most deliveries in a season - more than 1600 overs (which is why I thought of him when Robbo was rested). Maybe not as quick, but he wasn't a spinner either.

Fair enough about Head. I saw in the winter that he was expected to miss the first two games and I haven't seen anything about him since

Don't get me wrong, I bow to no one in my unbridled Tate love. But I think we all know that in the past the genuine fast/fast medium bowlers would be selective about how often they bowled flat out in the championship.

I'd like to think Robinson could play a game a week through the season without too many issues, but he looks to have been bowling a lot without holding anything back. If he's pulling up tired after the first few games there's no point flogging him into the ground this early, particularly given he's a decent chance of playing for England this season.

The bowling attack looks pretty useful without him to be fair, even though he's clearly the standout. If, at the end of the game, we think the bowlers were the main problem then the batting will probably have surpassed all our expectations.

No Head 'til the fifth date? Can't we bring it forward with a half bottle of vodka and a bag of chips? It used to work in my day.

Unbelievable Robinson rested after just 3 games. He may have bowled 100 overs but this was over 3 weeks
