Ollie Robinson will be a real asset Down Under: Nasser Hussain

The England fast bowler finished with match figures of 7 for 81 in the third Test against India at Headingley

Former England captain Nasser Hussain lavished praise on Ollie Robinson, who won the player of the match for his match figures of 7 for 81 - saying that the fasy bowler will be handy in Australia during the Ashes. Robinson played a pivotal part in the Headingley Test, in which India were bowled out for 78 in the first innings and despite being in a good position, India lost eight wickets for just 63 on Day Four.

“It was an outstanding bowling performance from England. Twice in the game as well; 78 all out in the first innings and 63 for 8 today. Robinson, in particular, since he has come in this side, he has just looked ready for Test match cricket,” said Nasser Hussain.

Talking about yet another marquee event - The Ashes - which will be played later this year Down Under, Hussain said the Sussex pacer will be a real asset.

“I think Shane [Warne] in the commentary box compared him to Josh Hazlewood of Australia, that sort of bowler that is at you all the time - and that's a good compliment, because he's a serious bowler, especially where England are going next. He will be a real asset Down Under,” added Nasser Hussain.

With a comprehensive win in Leeds, England have levelled the five-match series 1-1, with the next Test scheduled to begin on September 2 at The Oval.
