He had his fair share of success but injury concerns and poor form have once again put a question mark on his Test career. Acknowledging that Robinson stated that he understands the pressure and mentioned that it is probably make-or-break time for the England pacer.

The 30-year-old stated that going forward, he will try to stay injury-free and contribute to the team’s success in the upcoming summer, in which, England will host West Indies and Sri Lanka. Ahead of that, the pacer is slated to play for Sussex in the County Championship and is in good shape for the tournament.

“I’m 30 now and in sport that’s not young anymore. I feel this is the last summer when I will get any slack. Going forward I have to perform, I have to be injury free and prove I’m the best bowler for the job. It’s probably make or break time for me,” Robinson was quoted as saying by Daily Mail.

I haven’t lost too much sleep over what the Australians have said: Robinson

“I haven’t lost too much sleep over what the Australians have said to be honest. A few of my mates have sent those comments to me, laughing and stuff, and I do enjoy that side of things. Sometimes I say these things to drive me forward. But when I come out and say so many things, run my mouth a bit if you like, then I do have to expect a backlash when I don’t show up. When you say things and they don’t come off you can look a bit silly but all I can do is try to get it right,” Robinson concluded.
