Description:
Mark Andrew Robinson (born 23 November 1966, Hull, Yorkshire) was an English cricketer: a right-arm fast-medium bowler who also batted right-handed. He was renowned for being one of the worst batsmen in the modern professional game, finishing with a career first-class batting average of 4.01, a figure which would have been even lower had it not been for his fairly high proportion of not outs (112 of them in 259 first-class innings).

Early career

After a number of appearances in Northamptonshire's second XI, Robinson made his first-class debut in 1987 against Lancashire, taking four wickets in the match including those of Mike Watkinson and Neil Fairbrother. By the end of the season he was playing a significant part in the first team, and the following year he took 46 first-class wickets at 22.93. However, with the bat he scored only 37 runs in 17 innings, more than half of them when he made 19* and 2* against Essex in his final game of the summer.

He spent the winter in New Zealand playing for Canterbury, though his bowling was not particularly effective and he averaged over 40. Returning to Northants for 1989, Robinson claimed 37 wickets, but a derisory total of 17 runs from 23 innings brought him an average of 1.30 despite 10 not-outs. This included a sequence of seven successive scoreless innings between April and June, although he was dismissed in only five of these.
