Ollie Robinson cleared to join England squad for Ireland Test after injury scare | Cricket News

Seamer Ollie Robinson has been deemed fit to join the England squad for the upcoming one-off Test against Ireland next month, according to the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).
A recent scan of his left ankle revealed no significant damage. Robinson, who has represented England in 16 matches, had experienced discomfort in his ankle while playing for his County Championship team, Sussex, last week.
England is scheduled to face Ireland in a solitary Test match commencing on June 1 at Lord’s. Following the encounter with Ireland, England will embark on a demanding five-Test Ashes series against Australia, which is set to commence at Edgbaston on June 16.
“Scan results have revealed no damage to the ankle and that Robinson will join up with the England Men’s Test squad this weekend,” ECB said in a statement on Tuesday.


England have encountered injury setbacks in their preparation for the Ashes series, with fast bowler Jofra Archer being ruled out and fellow pace bowler James Anderson sidelined due to a groin strain.
Archer’s absence and Anderson’s injury have posed challenges for the England team as they gear up for the highly anticipated series against Australia.
Australia currently hold the Ashes after successfully retaining the urn with a comprehensive 4-0 victory over England on their home soil in the 2021-22 season.
