YORKSHIRE County Cricket Club have sacked pace bowler Oliver Robinson, son of England assistant coach Paul Farbrace’s partner, Sandra.

Robinson, 20, has been axed after a number of disciplinary breaches.

In a statement, the club said: “The Yorkshire County Cricket Club have today announced that Oliver Robinson’s contract has been terminated with immediate effect due to a number of unprofessional actions.

“No further comment will be made by the club.”

Robinson, who was born in Kent, played seven games in this year’s NatWest T20 Blast.

He was often used to bowl overs at the death and took six wickets at 27.00, including a brace in the Roses match at Old Trafford.

Robinson played three List A fixtures for Yorkshire last summer but did not take a wicket.

David Willey smashed 70 from 38 balls to help Yorkshire Vikings to victory against Birmingham Bears.
