Robinson was one of five changes England to their side, being in XI.
Haseeb Hameed, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, James Anderson and Jack Leach all dropped out, and England opted for four contestants with Ben Stokes he can’t bowling.
After Joe Root won the draw and decided to play, Robinson took a new ball along with Stuart Broad and made an early breakthrough.

Warner held up 22 balls on the fold before being caught by Zak Crawley for his fifth duck in Ashes cricket in the second slip.
I keep talking BBC Test Match Special, former English bowler Steven Finn said: “Nice piece of bowling. In the previous over Robinson was a bit short and adjusted his length.
“It has a considerable seam shift. Warner just pushed forward, but found an edge due to a crack in the surface.”
The former Australia bowler Glenn McGrath added: “England bowled quite well. Broad bowled a really good length. Robinson was a bit short, but he adjusted. These conditions are perfect for him.”
Broad then fired Warner’s introductory partner Usman Khawaja just three times later and left Australia 7-2.
Khawaja, who scored two tonnes in the fourth test in Sydney, held up 26 balls and was caught by Root in a six-point slip.

“You wonder if Khawaja really had to play, but length and angle are important,” McGrath said. “It’s another big wicket. England is making the most of winning this draw.”
Smith then became the third Australian wicket to fall, but he also caught himself in a slip and left his side 12-3.
Robinson was the one to make a breakthrough for England again, with Sussex Seamer continuing to impress in his first series Ashes.
