Brown - who was named Sussex's 52nd club captain in March - leads the club's run-scoring in the County Championship this summer. The 26-year-old has scored 346 runs at an average of 49.43.

He said: “I’m very pleased to commit my future to the club. I am excited by the challenge of captaincy and I’m determined to help lead the club in the right direction.  

“I feel as a club we are making good progress and I’m looking forward to all the challenges that lie ahead both as a captain and a player.

“It’s my ambition to win trophies with my home club and I hope we’ll be able to realise this ambition in the near future.”

Head coach, Jason Gillespie added: “Ben is a hugely important member of our squad and he has led the side very well in the Championship and one-day competition so far this season.
