Ollie Robinson, who gave a roaring send-off to Usman Khawaja on Day 4, has picked up another verbal duel with the Australian opener. During a tense run-chase on the deciding day of the opening 2023 Ashes Test, the two cricketers were involved in a heated exchange, before Robinson was pulled back by his senior English teammate James Anderson.

Robinson spurs another verbal exchange with Khawaja

Following the conclusion of the 43rd over of the Australian run-chase, Usman Khawaja was seen responding to Ollie Robinson’s verbal bouncers on the pitch. The heated moment is an outcome of their Day 4 episode, when the English speedster gave a huge stare-down to the Australian opener after rattling his stumps.

Furthermore, around the drinks break on the fifth evening, the two cricketers were involved in another verbal exchange, before the Englishman was pulled back by a smiling James Anderson.

In the meantime, Khawaja fights on for his country in their herculean pursuit. Chasing a monumental 281 to take a 1-0 lead in the 2023 Ashes, Australia wiped out 107 of those runs on Day 4 evening, at the expense of three top-order wickets.

The Australian batting veteran resumed his team’s response on Day 5, alongside night watchman Scott Boland. The 36-year-old completed a cautious half-century, the 22nd of his career, to add to his 141 from the first innings.
