Profile

Josh Cobb has built his reputation primarily as a dangerous T20 batsman and occasional offspinner. Never was that more apparent than in the 2016 NatWest Blast final when his audacious 80 took Northants to a final-over victory against Durham. A member of Leicestershire's winning team in 2011, Cobb top-edged Chris Rushworth to the keeper as he tried to win the match with a six. He also held a stunning one-handed catch at cover to dismiss Keaton Jennings, whose 88 had become the highest score in Finals Day history.
