Another product of Northamptonshire’s Academy, Rob ticked a notable achievement off his personal cricketing ‘to do’ list in 2016 with a maiden Championship double-century – 202 not out - against Leicestershire. Only Ben Duckett racked up more first-class runs for the County last season. After scoring heavily in school cricket at Framlingham, Rob confirmed his arrival at the higher level in 2012 with three Championship centuries, including two in the same match against Derbyshire. Since then he has suffered some frustrating injuries but in 2014 earned the admiration of all present when he braved a cracked thumb to deny Durham’s bowlers and save Northamptonshire from defeat in the first Championship Division One fixture at Wantage Road since 2004.
