Michael Atherton criticizes Ollie Robinson’s play in the Ranchi Test between IND and ENG

<p>Ollie Robinson, a right-arm bowler, bowled without picking up a wicket in the fourth Test match between India and England at Ranchi, disappointingly for former England captain Michael Atherton. Notably, India won the series with one game remaining despite Robinson’s inability to capture a single wicket in the first innings and his lack of access to the ball in the last innings.</p>

<p>Robinson made his debut for his country during the Ranchi Test, his first since the Headingley, Leeds, third Test of the Ashes in 2024. In the first three Test matches in the current series, England favored Mark Wood and James Anderson over the tall pacer. Before the fourth Test, Ben Stokes praised Robinson’s bowling, but the batsman had the most impact. With 58 runs in the first innings, Robinson and Joe Root formed a vital partnership that helped England surpass 300 runs.</p>
<p>“I was quite let down by Ollie Robinson throughout this game. He seemed to bowl, and he was moving at a slow and steady speed. undoubtedly made that half-century, but he failed to make a catch. On the last day, Stokes did not call upon him, and he seemed to be a player who had been away from cricket for seven months. Atherton said on the Sky Cricket Podcast, “He seems like a bowler who needs a good run of game time now, not necessarily with England either.”</p>
<p>It’s unclear whether Robinson will play in the series finale in Dharamshala, where seamers are anticipated to get some assistance. Although James Anderson, a seasoned player who has previously participated in three straight Tests, was rested for the fourth Test and may make a comeback to the starting eleven.</p>
<p>Shoaib Bashir captured two wickets in as many balls, leaving the hosts 120 for 5 in their second innings, 72 runs short of the victory mark at lunch on day four, giving England, down 2-1 ahead of the fourth Test, a chance to even the series.</p>
<p>Dhruv Jurel finished undefeated at 39, but Shubman Gill grabbed command of the game with an incredible 52 runs off 124 balls to lead India to victory. In Dharamshala, the visitors will want to round up the series with a victory, and before the final Test on March 7, Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum will have to make some tough selections.</p>
