Ben Sealey was an attacking right-hand batsman, an athletic fielder, and a tidy legspinner, whose one Test outing came at the end of West Indies tour of England in 1933. On that trip he scored 1072 runs at 39.70 and took 19 wickets. He top-scored at The Oval, albeit with 29, adding 12 in the second innings and also took one wicket. He continued playing first-class cricket until 1941, by which time he was 42.
