Ollie Robinson Worrying about past trauma Ben Stokes and “missed opportunity” in the field like England was started on a dismaying second day of the Ashes opening in Brisbane

Robinson was the standout performer for his team at The Gabba, taking three 48 points to confirm his certification as a Serious Test performer, but his best efforts were not enough to flip the flip. reverse in a game that may have passed the tourist’s reach.

Australia 196 at the stump, going 343 to seven after Travis Head’s 85th-century tackle, David Warner’s lucky 94 and Marnus Labuschagne’s usually certain 74.

For an English team that clinched a top score of 39 by Jos Buttler on Wednesday, it was a sublime experience in the Queensland heat.

Warner had three lives – Stokes’ free-kick shot, was beaten by Rory Burns when he slipped, and escaped a close run from Haseeb Hameed. Worse still, all-rounder Stokes suffered his left knee glaze mid-day and could only put in the half with the ball in hand after his first game. He will be evaluated overnight by doctors.

“It is always difficult when a seafarer is in trouble, especially in these conditions,” says Robinson.

“He (Stokes) has something that not all of us have – he has speed and fire – so that hurt us a little bit. The other boys took it down and I think it was a good effort in the end.

“It was a kettle. It was difficult conditions for us but the boys overcame it. There were some missed opportunities and on another day we could have knocked them out four goals early.”

Robinson was able to deliver a bit of good news, welcoming things into the current climate, by setting aside his own fitness concerns after he seemed to feel his hamstring deep in the morning. dark.

“My body is fine,” he said. “I’ve come in for strapping and maintenance but tonight I’ll rest and come back (on Friday),” he said.

“It went well. I was consistent and had a lot of play and misses. I feel like I’m going to cut Warner out of everything. “

Stokes’ day could easily have gone the other way had he managed to keep his boot a few inches back as he cut down Warner’s stump when he was just 17 years old.

Then it happened that one of the 14 balls was not sent down by him before lunch, none of which was called in real time. Finally confirmed that the technology has malfunctioned and will not be available during the match.

England bowling coach Jon Lewis said: “What a fast bowler needs is an understanding of their foot position. He needs some feedback from the referee.

“It would be nice that the first ball wasn’t called if he could make an adjustment so that from then on he would be behind the touchline.”

Head, who will continue into 112 without having to go out on Tuesday morning, is a satisfied man at the end who has declared the third fastest Ashes century in history.

“I’m still holding myself back, I can’t work out what happened for a few hours,” Head said.

“I found the first 20 runs really tough but the game opened up and I was able to take my chances. I’m playing for the country and love to do it. What a great feeling it was to get another hundred Test matches.

“I bet my luck on some parts but I’ve put Australia in a great position and I’m honored to do so.”
