Son of former Leicestershire player Russell, Joshua Cobb made his first-class debut aged just 17, and quickly went on to become the county's youngest centurion when he scored 148* against Middlesex in 2008.

'Josh' further made news when he delivered a match-winning performance for the Leics in their domestic T20 competition in 2011, taking four wickets and scoring 18 off 10 balls to help his side beat Somerset to clinch the title. He was deserving enough to be adjudged Man-of-the-Match for that.
