Jason Gillespie has praised ten-wicket Ollie Robinson after another big Sussex win.

The pace bowler claimed his second five-for in as many days to help secure a 274-run success over Leicestershire at Hove.

Sussex have gone second in the table and now await Kent’s result against Northants in the race for promotion from Specsavers County Championship division two.

Head coach Gillespie said: “I couldn’t be happier and I thought Ollie Robinson was outstanding.

“He bowled very well at Lord’s last week without much reward and he just bowls beautifully.

“It was rich reward for bowling that disciplined line and length.

“You see how often he hit the pads and the stumps.”

Robinson claimed the first five wickets to fall after Sussex batted on today to set a victory target of 451.

Leicestershire were three down at tea and looking defiant but Robinson struck twice in his first over after the resumption to spark a clatter.

He found late movement to trap top-scorer Colin Ackermann (52) leg-before deep in his crease after the South African hit nine fours in 101 balls faced and struck again two balls later when he plucked out Ned Eckersley’s off stump.

Robinson took 5-24 in the first innings and 5-43 in the second while Jofra Archer belatedly picked up the reward he deserved to finish with 3-44.
