Sussex: Mark Robinson aims to boost experience with Lions

Sussex cricket manager Mark Robinson tells BBC Radio Humberside that coaching the England Lions side will help his own international management ambitions.

The 46-year-old will lead the Lions on their tour of Sri Lanka next year, where they will play three Tests against Sri Lanka A.

Robinson will be absent from Hove throughout February but says Sussex's preparations for the new campaign should not be adversely affected.
