Northamptonshire Player Number: 492
Josh secured a place in the record books in 2016 after being named ‘Man of the Match’ in a domestic T20 final for the second time in his career. His knock of 80 from 48 balls (his fifth half-century of the campaign) paved the way for the Steelbacks’ triumph over Durham at Edgbaston. He celebrated by signing a new three-year deal with the club. The son of a Leicestershire stalwart, Russell Cobb, Josh crossed one of county cricket’s great divides – from Grace Road to Wantage Road – in 2015 and proceeded to make telling contributions in all formats for his new club. In addition to his destructive batting and tidy off-spin, he is one of the most brilliant fielders in county cricket. After a relatively quiet 2017 season he will be eager to return to the spotlight this summer following a stint in Australia.
