Profile

Though admirers of Surrey's Stuart Surridge and Percy Fender may dispute it, there is a fairly widespread opinion in this country, and not only in the north, that Brian Sellers, who died on February 20 at the age of 73, was the finest tactician and leader of men among county captains. A disciplinarian with a fruity sense of humour, he guided his team of many talents and independent thought to six Championships in eight seasons up to the Hitler war (acting in F. E. Greenwood's stead for much of 1932), and had his batting been stronger he must have been given command of the Test team. He was certainly Test class as a close or cover fieldsman.
