High praise for Robinson

Barbados-born England international cricketer Chris Jordan has heaped praise on his Sussex coach Mark Robinson.

Jordan, whose cricket career has taken off since arriving at Sussex from Surrey, said that England would have benefited immensely from appointing Robinson as the national coach.

Despite being given the chance to interview for the job, Robinson was overlooked in favour of Peter Moores, who will begin a second term in charge of the England team.

“Robbo is a very good coach and man-manager. England would have benefited immensely from his enthusiasm and passion,” Jordan told BBC Sussex.

“I guess England’s loss is ultimately Sussex’s game.

“Robbo staying means stability at the top. Hopefully with that and the ideas he brings to the table we can really kick on and challenge for some trophies at the business end of the season.”

Robinson has won the County Championship twice and led his side to four one-day trophies during his time in charge of Sussex.

Moores takes back management of the England team following an earlier stint that ended in a much publicized falling out with Kevin Pietersen.

The England and Wales County Board has since brought Pietersen’s career to an abrupt end.

Jordan, who made his debut in ODI and T20 cricket for England in recent months, is also heavily tipped to make the Test squad.
