The Steelbacks Skipper showed why he’s so highly regarded in T20 cricket this season, putting in outstanding performances with bat and ball throughout the competition. Cobb was the Steelbacks’ second highest run scorer in the Vitality Blast, picking up 12 wickets too with best figures of an incredible 5/25.
The Australian lit up Wantage Road again and again this summer, picking up a bagful of Northamptonshire T20 records along the way. His two centuries is the most by any Steelbacks batsman as he pillaged 516 runs at an eyewatering strike rate of 159.
A never-say-die attitude from the Kiwi allrounder nearly carried Northamptonshire to two victories out of nowhere against Lancashire and Leicestershire. At a blistering 173 strike rate Neesham racked up 255 runs to go with his 12 wickets.
Northamptonshire’s leading wicket taker in the Vitality Blast, Ben Sanderson showed his skills happily make the jump between red and white ball. The paceman picked up 16 scalps in the tournament, his best return in a T20 competition.
