Ollie Robinson impressed on his debut for England in their draw in the first test against New Zealand at Lords.

The 27-year-old was the pick of the bowlers in both innings (4-75) and (3-26) to finish with matches figures of 7-101.

In between that he hit the joint second-highest score of England’s first innings with 42 from 101 balls, which included five fours.

New Zealand began the final day 62-2, but Robinson made the breakthrough.

Nightwatchman Neil Wagner, who hit an unbeaten 25 from 21 balls in the first innings, attempted to pull a delivery from the Sussex seamer.

But his shot sailed straight into the air, with fellow debutant James Bracey taking a straightforward catch.

England then took a further three wickets with Tom Latham being trapped lbw by vice-captain Stuart Broad, former Sussex man Ross Taylor being caught behind behind off the bowling of Mark Wood and Henry Nicholls being caught by Rory Burns off the bowling of skipper Joe Root.

But after reaching 169-6 at Lunch the Kiwis declared, with a lead of 272.

In reply England only lost three wickets with Burns, Zak Crawley and then Root all heading back to the Pavillion.

However an unbeaten 60 from opener Dom Sibley and 20 not out from Ollie Pope guided England to 170-3 at the close, 103 runs short of a target they never attempted to try and chase.

The draw was England’s third consecutive drawn Test on home soil.

Robinson will be hoping to carry his fine form with both bat and ball into the second and final test of the two-match series between the sides, which gets underway on Thursday at Edgbaston.
