London, Mar 31 (IBNS): Sussex County Cricket Club on Saturday appointed Ben Brown as their permanent club captain.

Brown became the 52nd cricketer to become the skipper of the 179-year old County club.

Reacting to his appointment as the leader, Brown was quoted by Sussex Cricket Club official website, "Everyone that knows me knows how passionate and proud I am to be a Sussex player, so to become club captain today is a special day for me and my family."

"I am hugely honoured to join the special names on the board of captains at this historic club and I will endeavour to do everything I can to move us forward both on and off the field.”

Sussex head coach Jason Gilespie felt Brown has emerged as the true leader among all players.

Expressing his pleasure, Gilespie, the former Australian fast bowler, said: "On the pitch, I’m sure he’ll do a fantastic job of leading the side in the Championship and the one-day competition."

"I know Ben would have loved to have taken charge in all three competitions, but we need to make sure we manage his workload as best we can."

However, Luke Wright, the previous captain, will lead the side in the Vitality Blast T20 competition in this season.

Wright said he is excited to lead the side in the T20 competition. "To get this opportunity to captain one of the most promising-looking Sussex T20 sides in years is fantastic. I can’t wait for the campaign to get underway in July."
