Day 4 of the second Test between Australia and England saw something remarkable and incredibly funny. It was England pacer Ollie Robinson bowling spin with funky sunglasses. While the bowling was nowhere that England would have wanted, it certainly left certain fans and commentators in splits. England are down and out in the match and are heading towards an inevitable loss.

With no Root, who bowled a few overs of spin in the first innings, England tried Robinson, who had bowled spin previously for Sussex. However, it was clear from his bowling that he is good only as a pacer. Adelaide is a surface that is known for offering spin but England opted to go in with a full pace attack and in the end were found wanting in need of a regular spinner.

Robinson’s former Sussex teammate Stuart Meaker took to Twitter and described his spin bowling as “lethal”. He wrote: “I can confirm these off-spinners from Ollie Robinson are lethal…Turn and Bounce….lots of Bounce in fact”

Meanwhile, England have been docked a few Test Championship points for slow over rate which could well be the reason of Robinson rolling his arm as a spinner. Meanwhile, Australia have extended their lead to 381 at the time of writing and it seems it’s only a matter of time when Australia go 2-0 up in the series. England batters have to pull of something extraordinary to save this Test from here.
