Players to watch in the Bob Willis Trophy

With county cricket returning in the Bob Willis Trophy on August 1, we’ve picked out four players to keep your eye on during the shortened red-ball season.

Jordan Cox

Already a multiple centurion for England Under-19s, teenage wicketkeeper-batsman Cox looks a classy talent. He debuted for Kent in 2019 in all formats, featuring regularly in the Vitality Blast, and has been used as an opener, at three and in the middle order for Kent in three first-class appearances. Cox passed fifty in a warm-up game against Essex, with some composed and silky strokeplay.

Will Jacks

Jacks’ name will be recognisable for his stunning demolition of Lancashire during a pre-season T10 in 2019, smashing a 25-ball century which included six sixes in an over. That was not the first batting assault he’s launched, having twice struck double hundreds in schoolboy cricket. Given a chance to impress last season in all formats, he recorded maiden first-class and List A hundreds, but couldn’t add further three-figure scores.

Joey Evison

One of Dean Headley’s prospects from Stamford School, Evison made his first-class debut for Nottinghamshire in September 2019 just days before signing his first professional contract. The 18-year-old seam-bowling all-rounder followed that with a winter in the England Under-19s, during which he equalled the fastest half-century at Under-19 level (18 balls).

Matthew Waite

The Yorkshire seam-bowling all-rounder took a maiden five-wicket-haul against Leeds/Bradford MCCU in April 2019, but made just two County Championship appearances during the season. The 24-year-old has eight first-class appearances under his belt and was the pick of the White Rose’s bowlers in a pre-season friendly against Lancashire, while he also struck 43.
