Josh Brown is, without doubt, one of the most destructive batsmen in Queensland Premier Cricket.

Playing for Northern Suburbs, alongside Test star Joe Burns and State/Big Bash players Nathan McSweeney, Jack Prestwidge, Cameron Gannon, the big-hitting Aussie has produced some of the most explosive innings in Grade cricket in recent years.

Brown broke into the North’s first-grade side during the 2018/19 season, following a strong showing in his 10 second-grade games that summer (502 runs at 45.64). However, it was his 2018/19 summer that propelled him towards Queensland 2nd XI honours (playing in the 2nd XI T20 Competition in January 2020).

Following a bout of glandular fever that affected his early season, he returned in December 2019 to belt an incredible 168 (from 152 balls including 14 sixes) in the second grade. He was swiftly elevated to the top-flight where he produced scores of 53 (26 balls with 3 sixes), a record-breaking 108 (36 balls with 12 sixes), and 71 (30 balls with 6 sixes) in his new few innings.

Brown’s century against South Brisbane was one of the fastest Premier T20 centuries on record. He brought up his ton from only 34 balls before finishing with 108 from 36 balls to include 12 sixes. What made his innings even more incredible was the fact he started with 4 dot balls. Brown ended the summer with 715 runs at 44.69, not to mention 10 wickets at 32.80 with his brisk medium pace.

Proven the previous summer was no fluke, Brown was at it again last season (2020/21) hitting a further 778 runs at 33.83 with explosive centuries against Toombul (137 from 110 balls) and Redlands (128 from 57 balls with 14 sixes).

The strongly built batter, who bowls handy medium pace is now looking to build on his success to date and push on towards his dream to play Big Bash and T20 cricket globally. He initially aspires to play club cricket in Europe in 2022, following his barnstorming UK stint in 2019.

Playing for Histon, he helped the club to their best finish (2nd) since 2002. He stormed the Cambs and Hunts Division One scoring an incredible 1,171 runs in 18 innings with an average of 78.09, including five centuries, four half-centuries, 96 fours, and 82 sixes. He also took 73 wickets at 16.60 including three five-wicket hauls. His season concluded with a record-breaking 149-ball 290, including 25 sixes and just as many boundaries against March Town.

A high-class prospect who seems destined for higher honours. He would be a serious signing for any club in 2022.
