Ollie Robinson disclosed that England cricketers were anxious about performing the new national anthem of the United Kingdom at the Oval on Saturday because they were afraid of getting the words incorrect. The people of England paid their respects to the late Queen Elizabeth II, whose passing was revealed on Thursday at the age of 96. This took place prior to the start of play on the third day of the scheduled five-day third Test that was being played against South Africa.
Teams and officials, all of whom were wearing black armbands, lined up on the outfield at the Oval after play on the opening day was washed out without a ball being bowled and after Friday’s second day was completely abandoned as a mark of respect to Britain’s longest-serving monarch as a show of respect for the monarch.
Before the start of a cricket test match, the playing of a national anthem is an event that takes place less frequently than it does before the start of an international football or rugby union match.
But both countries’ anthems were sung by soprano Laura Wright, with the crowd in south London joining in a moving rendition of “God Save the King.” This was a small but significant change to the lyrics of “God Save the Queen,” which had lasted for 70 years now that Charles III is on the throne. The change was made to reflect the fact that Charles III is now on the throne.
South Africa were bowled out for a paltry total of 118, and England finished the day on 154-7, thanks in large part to the efforts of 28-year-old seamer Robinson of Sussex.
On the other hand, it looked like the national anthem was more of a concern to him than his bowling performance on Saturday.
Robinson, when speaking to reporters after the stumps, explained that “we had to remind ourselves of what we were actually going to sing.”
“As they descended the stairs, there were a few nervous-looking folks to be seen.”
“Extraordinary early morning”
Robinson continued by saying, “It was a really wonderful honour to be a part of it, and it was a pretty special morning, and it was a really special opportunity to sing it at this sporting event.”
Robinson, who has already taken 49 wickets in 11 Tests at an outstanding average of under 20, stated, “I genuinely didn’t feel that fantastic.” This is in reference to Robinson’s performance with his bowling.
“My run-up was all over the place, I couldn’t find a rhythm, and I was really just trying to focus on bashing out the length,” she said. I haven’t felt this bad in a long time.”
This match, which is the third of a three-Test series that is currently tied at 1-1, will not be extended into a sixth day due to South Africa’s understandable insistence on sticking to their original schedule. The tourists are scheduled to return home on Tuesday, which put an end to any hopes of this match being extended into a sixth day.
However, considering that both of the first two Tests were finished within three days of each other, there was every reason to expect that there was still sufficient time for either team to clinch victory in south London.
This viewpoint was further reinforced on Saturday, when fast bowlers from both teams made the most of the favourable overcast circumstances and combined for a total of 17 wickets while taking a combined total of 17 scalps.
South Africa was in a precarious position with a score of 36-6 when recalled left-arm quick Marco Jansen delivered an outstanding performance across the board.
Before he stunned England with a return of 4-34, he led the Proteas in scoring with 30 runs scored.
Ollie Pope’s blazing 67 on his home ground in Surrey helped England take a slim lead of 36 runs at the end of the game, despite the fact that other batters for the home team were guilty of playing careless strokes.
However, Robinson defended the risky strategy that led to England winning five of of their previous six Test matches before to this one under their new leadership tandem of captain Ben Stokes and coach Brendon McCullum.
“You saw when the South Africans batted that if you sat there and allowed Test match bowlers bowl six or 12 balls in a succession at you, you were going to go out,” he added. “You saw that you were going to get out if you let Test match bowlers bowl six or 12 balls in a row at you.”

“The kind of cricket we want to play is courageous cricket, and we want to have a positive attitude as we play.” In this match, our goal is to win by whatever means necessary, and that is what we are attempting to do.
