Robson celebrates dream cricket century

Afp
Monday, June 23, 2014

LEEDS, England - Scoring a maiden Test century was "the stuff dreams are made of", England batsman Sam Robson admitted after reaching three figures for England against Sri Lanka at Headingley yesterday.

The Australia-born opener endured a difficult debut in the first of this two-Test series where, despite the match being played at Lord's -- his Middlesex home ground -- he managed scores of just one and 19.

But it was a different story in Leeds where he made 127 on the second day of the second Test in an England first-innings effort of 6-320.

But, with Sri Lanka taking four wickets after tea, England led by a mere 63 runs at stumps to leave both the match and series intriguingly poised.

South Africa-born duo of Jonathan Trott and Kevin Pietersen after fellow top-six new boy Gary Ballance reached three figures during the draw at Lord's.
