Profile

Ben Brown was a virtual ever-present for Sussex in the Championship in 2013 because of Matt Prior's involvement in the England side and the move of Andrew Hodd to Yorkshire. Brown acquitted himself ably, averaging nearly 40 with the bat, and even represented 'England' - joining his team mate Chris Nash in the Hong Kong Sixes. But as the 2014 season approached, his future was again uncertain with Prior's England place being one of many which could not be taken for granted after a disastrous Ashes tour.
