England and Wales Cricket board (ECB) recently announced a list of 55 players to return to training in order to resume cricket in the country. The 55-player list comprises 14 uncapped cricketers and Ollie Robinson is one among them.

According to report by SkySports, the Sussex pacer Robinson said he idealises James Anderson and hopes to take his place after retirement of country’s top bowler.

“He’s definitely someone I look at as a role model and hopefully in the future I can almost take his place and fill the void. That’s definitely what I am aiming for,” added Ollie Robinson.

Most English bowlers look up to Jimmy

The English domestic bowler had got a chance to work with James Anderson at a bowling camp in South Africa in 2019 and got spurred by his perseverance.

“Being with Jimmy (James Anderson)  in South Africa this winter showed me a new way forward, seeing someone at the top of their game and how hard they still work,” Sky Sports News quoted the Sussex bowler as saying.

Ollie Robinson further added that Anderson has inspired many domestic players with his consistent and top class performance.

“I think most English bowlers around the country look up to Jimmy – he has taken that many wickets and played for that many years that it’s hard to look past that.”

Playing Test Cricket is my dream

Speaking further, the 26-year old bowlers, who took 137 wickets across the last two seasons in County Championship Division Two, said his aim is to platy test cricket and that is what is dreaming of ever since he has started.

“Ever since I started I have wanted to play Test cricket for England so the goal is red-ball cricket for me and my stats lean more that way as well,” Robinson was quoted by Sky Sports News as saying.
