Profile

Josh Cobb was part of an exodus from the Leicestershire squad that finished bottom of the Championship second division in 2014 without winning a match for the second successive season. Cobb, Leicestershire's one-day captain, joined Northants after scoring 3,133 first-class runs for his hometown club and also skippering them in the Championship in the absence of Ramnaresh Sarwan.
