Haddin Expects Payback After Robinson’s ‘Stupid’ Send-Off
If there was any doubt this Ashes series would be played without verbal fireworks that was all put to bed before halfway through the opening Test at Edgbaston.
England could not (legally) find a way through Usman Khawaja’s defence for eight hours until seamer Ollie Robinson clean bowled the Aussie left-hander with a yorker delivered round the wicket in the morning session of day three.
It led to an explosion of noise from the Edgbaston crowd and from Robinson himself, and you didn’t need to be an expert lip-reader to understand what he told Khawaja as the batter walked back to the dressing sheds with 141 runs to his name.
While Robinson was unapologetic for his behaviour post-play, former Australia wicketkeeper Brad Haddin called it “stupid” and says the Aussie quicks will have taken notice of the Englishman’s antics.
