England pacer Ollie Robinson is a doubt for the 2023 Ashes after picking up the injury during the second session of the ongoing Day 1 Headingley Test in Leeds. The fast bowler had a sore back and returned to the locker room in the middle of his over.
Ollie Robinson was in his 12th over and after bowling in two balls he walked out of the field and Stuart Broad completed his over in his place. ECB’s medical team assessed him during the tea break and it was revealed that he had suffered a back spasm.

Ollie Robinson was deemed unfit to participate in the next day’s game. It is not yet clear if he will participate more in the game or not. If he can’t play the rest of the game it will be a huge setback for England as he has bowled beautifully in the series and he is currently the second wicket taking leader in the series.
