Northamptonshire Player Number: 492

Josh will remember 2016 as the season which saw him named ‘Man of the Match’ in a domestic T20 final for the second time in his career, as a 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 the county game - just ask Sri Lankan great Mahela Jayawardene after THAT catch in the 2015 T20 quarter-final down at Hove!
