The Vitality T20 Blast is underway in England. The competition between bat and ball has been exceptional and various young stars have set the stage on fire with their performances. Not only with the bat and ball there have been quite a few impressive fielding performances. 

One such came during the game between Northamptonshire and Birmingham Bears at the county ground in Northampton on Wednesday (31st May). Josh Cobb was the hot soup of the game, especially after his magnificent effort in the field near boundary ropes.

It was during the 16th over of the Birmingham Bears innings when Rob Yates tried to dispatch the last ball of David Willey’s over for a six. The southpaw struck the shot powerfully and it seemed that it would clear the boundary rope at the leg region. But Josh Cobb plucked a blinder. He ran towards the left and timed his jump to perfection to gobble the ball.
