Ben Brown


Ben Brown is a right-handed batter and wicket-keeper who signed for Hampshire ahead of the 2022 season.

Following his departure from Sussex, Brown moved to Hampshire on a two-year deal across all formats.

He was born in Crawley and came through the youth set-up at Sussex, before playing for England U19s in 2006-07 and making his first class debut the following summer.

Brown became a regular with both the bat and the gloves, even scoring over 1,000 runs in the 2015 LV= Insurance County Championship. Soon after, in 2017, Brown was given the role of captain of Sussex's County Championship and List A sides.

He continued to perform impressively in the seasons that followed, especially in red-ball cricket where he averaged 40.41 in his time at Sussex. In the 2021 County Championship, Brown averaged 51.36 from 12 matches and no other player scored more than his four centuries - all after having lost the captaincy midway through the season.

Brown announced he would be leaving Sussex after over two decades with the club in late 2021. Overall he played 318 matches for Sussex, racking up a total of 10,843 runs, 543 catches and 40 stumpings.
