England pacer Ollie Robinson has mentioned it was a simple plan to dismiss Virat Kohli on day four of the Headingley Test. Robinson said he was sticking with the line of the fourth and fifth stumps with away angle in pursuit of Kohli’s edge.

Virat Kohli was batting beautifully on day three and had scored 45 runs before the stumps. He had the onus to play a big knock during day four to bail out India. He, however, edged Ollie Robinson just after completing his first fifty of the tour.

Robinson picked five wickets in the second innings and his match haul of seven wickets earned him a match of the match award and he was happy after winning it.

“It’s a dream to be honest, to get a man of the match award in my first win for England. I enjoyed bowling here before, and it’s nice to use the conditions here, so I’m happy to get a five-for here,” Robinson said after winning the player of the match award.

“To bowl with Jimmy and learn from him is an honour. It has only improved my game. I keep learning and trying to be as good as possible.”

“It’s nice to get Kohli after he got me for two fours in the over – it’s a simple plan to Virat, fourth and fifth stump, get it to angle away, and hope he nicks it and he did,” Robinson added.

“Feel fine, nice to have a break between Tests, freshen up and get the body recovered, looking forward to the next.”

The fourth Test will take place in London’s Kia Oval from September 2.
