Ollie Robinson believes he is ready for a Test debut.

The Sussex strike bowler enhanced his England claims with a career-beat 9-78 yesterday.

His match figures of 13-128, plus 67 with the bat, put Sussex well on course to beat Glamorgan by eight wickets in Cardiff.

They lead their group of the new-look LV= Insurance County Championship going into major tests at home to Yorkshire and Lancashire.

Robinson has been close to an England debut and would love to step up.

Asked whether he was ready, he said: “I feel like that. I have felt like that for probably a year now.

“I’ve been with England for 18 months here and there, sort of in and out.

“I feel like I am ready for Test cricket and I have just got to wait for my chance I suppose but I am definitely ready.

“I’m very pleased. Just pleased for the lads as well really. It is a great win.

“We have had a really good winter training and to get that win over four days is really satisfactory.

“I have always said if I can just keep performing for Sussex hopefully the selectors can see that and I will get my chance.”

Robinson took his wickets on what looked a flat wicket.

He said: “I have been a little bit stamped as an English conditions bowler so I have worked really hard on when it is flatter, still taking wickets and using different skills to get those wickets.

“Hopefully I am not pigeon-holed as an English conditions type bowler and I can do it all over the world.”
