England paceman Ollie Robinson, who decided to take a break from cricket after his offensive Twitter posts from several years ago came to light this month, will play for Sussex's second team in Twenty20 games against Hampshire on Tuesday, his county said.

Robinson said on Thursday he would take a break to spend time with his family and missed Sussex's Vitality Blast games against Gloucestershire and Hampshire Hawks on Friday and Saturday, respectively.

The 27-year-old was suspended from international cricket pending an investigation after his social media posts resurfaced on his Test debut against New Zealand at Lord's two weeks ago.

Robinson apologised "unreservedly" for being "thoughtless and irresponsible" at the time of posting the tweets.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said on Saturday it will review players' social media to address past issues and remind them of their responsibilities.
