Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the match: Joshua Cobb
Northamptonshire captain Joshua Cobb will have to take the blame if his team suffers a major setback. The right-handed batter was playing well for his 21 off 13 balls in his previous outing, but he couldn’t convert it into a big score. Cobb will look to correct his mistakes from the previous match by holding up one end while other batters play around him.
Probable best bowler of the match: James Neesham
New Zealand allrounder James Neesham bowled some excellent line and length in his previous outing and reaped the benefits, taking four wickets in 3.5 overs. The right-arm pacer was also economical, allowing only 26 runs.
