Keith Robert Brown was born in Edmonton in 1963 and he debuted in 1984. He made an early impression with a century versus the touring Australians in 1985. He was a forceful and sometimes belligerent right-handed batsman who became the county’s sixth most prolific wicketkeeper, with 501 first-class dismissals (468 caught and 33 stumped) and was capped in 1990. He scored 10,487 runs at an average of 35.19, in 247 first-class matches. His thirteen centuries included an immaculate 200 not out versus Nottinghamshire at Lord’s in 1990. He is only the second Middlesex wicketkeeper to exceed 10,000 runs and 500 dismissals in first-class cricket. Upon retirement, he became a schoolmaster in Devon.
