Blast Hero Ben Cox Heading To Uae For T20 Tournament

Worcestershire CCC’s Vitality Blast finals day batting hero Ben Cox will be heading to the UAE next week.

The Rapids wicket-keeper batsman is to participate in the Abu Dhabi T20 League.

Twenty-six-year-old Cox is to play for Boost Defenders who are part of the Shpageeza Cricket League.

He picked up the man of the match awards in both the Blast semi-final and final victories over Lancashire Lightning and Sussex Sharks respectively at Edgbaston 12 days ago.

Cox scored 55 not out versus Lancashire to enable Worcestershire to post a defendable total and then his unbeaten 46 saw them over the finishing line against Sussex, ending the game with a six and a four off Jofra Archer.

Six teams will be competing in the tournament at the Zayed Cricket Stadium which runs from October 4 to 6.

Hobart Hurricanes, Lahore Qalandars, Multiply Titans, Auckland Aces and Yorkshire are also taking part.

They will be split into two groups with the winners of both contesting the final.
