Ted James was a regular fixture in the Sussex seam attack during the 1950's. He made 299 first-class appearances for the county, taking 843 wickets with a best of 9 for 60 in a victory over Yorkshire at Hove. He twice took 100 wickets in a season. He was also useful with the bat and scored 3,411 first-class runs, often helping Sussex out of a precarious position.
