CricX are excited to announce that Ben Seabrook has penned his commitment for another season in the Cricket Southern Bayside competition as he re-signs for Bentleigh Cricket Club for their 2023/24 campaign.
Seabrook is a fluent right-hander who enjoys batting in the top order, he is an excellent fielder and can bowl some handy medium pace. The Englishman plays ECB Premier League cricket for Penzance CC in the Cornwall Premier League and also represents his county Cambridgeshire County Cricket Club in the NCCA (Former Minor Counties Championship).
In 2021, Ben was the leading white-ball cricketer in the non-professional game in the UK, in the NCCA One Day Trophy scoring 307 runs, averaging 76.75 at a strike rate of 100+. Notable scores of 135* and 123 led his side to the National Semi-Finals. The Englishman is widely regarded as one of the best batters outside of the Professional game and still has aspirations to play the game at the highest level.
Seabrook has played for Durham County Cricket Club in the 2nd XI Championship and was also an integral member of the Durham MCCU side.
In his 2022/23 stint with Bentleigh, Ben put together an unbelievable contribution of 839 runs @69.92 with the bat which includes 7 half-centuries and a century, which end up being a top-score of 130 against Murrumbeena on his white-ball debut for the club. It also included over 80 boundaries adding 30 sixes on top of that, too!
We wish Ben and everyone at Bentleigh the best of luck for their upcoming season.
