Ollie Robinson believes he showed he is in great shape as he shone in an historic Test win.

The Sussex star was named man of the match as England beat Pakistan by 74 runs in Rawalpindi.

England’s aggressive, bold tactics paid off in the final session of day five in their first Test in Pakistan since 2005.

The match produced 1,768 runs, the most ever in any five-day Test.

The hosts resumed after tea requiring just 86 more runs to win with five wickets remaining, but England fought back to secure an unlikely victory as the sun began to set over a packed stadium.

Robinson took 4-50, all of them key wickets, as Pakistan chased 343 He told BBC Test Match Special: “I have probably never experienced anything like that really.

“The lack of pace and bounce in the wicket, I was just shocked when I first saw it.

“Any lateral movement that we can get, we trust our skills enough to take those wickets.

“It’s pleasing to help the team win.”

Robinson’s fitness has been questioned in the past But he has worked hard at that aspect of his game and said: “I felt like I came in all day every day.

“We fielded for four days straight there and the body is still good.

“I think that’s probably up there with one of my best performances.”

England scored their runs at an astonishing rate – 6.50 in the first innings and 7.36 in the second – before a relentless bowling performance justified Ben Stokes’ bold declaration.

James Anderson took 4-36 in the fourth innings including two late scalps as bad light threatened to halt the victory push in its tracks.

Anderson told Sky Sports: “It’s probably one of the best wins I’ve been involved in, if not the best.

“On a pitch like that, to play the way we did, to score runs at the rate we did, we gave ourselves a chance to get the result.

“It was an unbelievable effort from everyone.”
