Former Sussex captain Ben Brown joins Hampshire

The signing of former Sussex captain Ben Brown has been announced by Hampshire UK January 15 ANI Hampshire Cricket.

The 33-year-old wicketkeeper-batter, who announced he would leave Sussex late last year after over two decades with the club, will join Hampshire on a two-year deal across all formats.

I am extremely proud and humbled to sign for Hampshire. Ben Brown said that it was privilege to be part of a talented playing squad and to have the opportunity to work with the Club's impressive coaching staff.

The right-hander has an impressive red ball record, one that has seen him average 40.41 since his first-class debut in 2007. He averaged 51.36 from 12 matches and no other player scored more centuries than the four he registered in the 2021 County Championship.

Giles White, Hampshire Director of Cricket said Ben's arrival is exciting news for the Club and we are looking forward to welcoming him to the group next week.

He brings many qualities and has a particularly impressive red-ball record, and we are confident he'll be a great addition to the squad, he added.
