Josh Cobb: Northamptonshire white-ball captain signs new two-year deal

Josh Cobb has been named Northants’ T20 player of the year in three of the past four seasons

Northamptonshire’s white-ball skipper Josh Cobb has signed a new contract until the end of the 2022 season.

The 29-year-old was the Steelbacks’ leading T20 Blast scorer last year, with 254 runs in 10 innings.

Occasional off-spinner Cobb joined Northants from Leicestershire in 2014.

“Last year we showed glimpses of what we are capable of in white ball cricket and I’m looking forward to playing some more of that positive cricket consistently,” he said.
