Sussex seamer Ollie Robinson has been left out of England’s latest Test squad.

He will not face a West Indies side whose pace attack features his Hove colleague Jayden Seales.

The news clears the way for him to continue to feature for the county in both the Championship nd T20 Vitality Blast.

His efforts in both formats have been praised by staff and colleagues, despite his nightmare 43-run over in last week’s win over Leicestershire.

The squad announced today is for the first two matches of a three-Test series.

Sussex head coach Paul Farbrace said: “He is playing good cricket. He is practising hard and he is working hard.”

The England selection panel, chaired by director of cricket Rob Key, have had to restructure the bowling group.

With Stuart Broad retiring at the end of last summer and Jimmy Anderson following close behind, they need to fill the gap left by two greats who boast a combined 1,304 Test wickets.

They have gone back to Durham’s Matthew Potts, who has 23 wickets at 29.26 in his six caps.

Surrey’s Gus Atkinson, who impressed with his pace last year and was an unused squad member in India, steps up as does Nottinghamshire’s Dillon Pennington.

Wicketkeeper-batter Jamie Smith, also of Surrey, is a third uncapped player named in the group as Jonny Bairstow, Ben Foakes and Jack Leach are left out.

Sussex resume their Blast campaign at home to Glamorgan on Friday before hosting Hampshire the following Wednesday.

Squad: B Stokes (c), J Anderson (first Test only), G Atkinson, S Bashir, H Brook, Z Crawley, B Duckett, D Lawrence, D Pennington, O Pope, M Potts, J Root, J Smith, C Woakes.
