Leicestershire CCC's Josh Cobb to skipper England
Josh Cobb has been named as captain of the England squad for next month's Hong Kong Sixes tournament.
The 22-year-old built up his captaincy experience at Grace Road last season as he led the side in both 40-over and Championship cricket at some stage.
He was also appointed one-day captain in July, taking over from club captain Matthew Hoggard.
Cobb featured in the England side which reached the final of last year's Hong Kong competition, losing out to a Pakistan side inspired by Foxes favourite Abdul Razzaq.
