The successful captain of Sussex County for the 2019 season, Ben Brown, had an extension to continue until the end of the 2023 season. The news rolled out officially after the player is retained on Friday (March 6). Going back to his first-class debut in 2007, he continues playing for the same club to date and furthers more.
In Brown’s words: “I’m delighted to be committing to the club for the next few years, which I’m hoping can be the best of my career so far. I’m looking forward to pushing myself to make sure that they are, and I’m excited about the challenges ahead,” the 31-year-old wicket-keeper batsman was quoted as saying by the Sussex website.
“I’ve loved captaining the side over the last two years and hopefully I can continue to do that for many seasons to come, as well as play my part in driving the whole club forward. It’s been great to have some fresh faces to boost our squad over the winter and all the boys have been working really hard ahead of the new campaign.”
“Everyone is looking forward to coming together as a group again on tour in South Africa and then getting going with the new season.”
