Video - Maiden Century 'Incredible' - Robson

Watch as England's Sam Robson says scoring his maiden Test century against Sri Lanka at Headingley was an incredible experience.

He went on to make 127 in 253 balls as England closed day two on 320 for six replying to Sri Lanka's 257 all out.

In just his second Test, Robson reached his century in 220 deliveries shortly after tea having batted throughout the first two sessions.

He shared substantial partnerships with Gary Ballance (74) and Ian Bell (64) as England built a 63-run lead by stumps.

He describes how he feels about reaching his century, the importance of his family being at Headingley to witness it and the role that Bell played at the other end during their partnership.
