Reginald Hugh Durning Sellers OAM (born 20 August 1940) is a former Test cricketer (Australian test cap 230). As a tall legspinner, he played one Test match for Australia in India (the place of his birth), in October 1964; where he was bowled for a duck, took 1 catch and bowled five overs for 17 runs without taking a wicket. His playing career was severely restricted due to injuries. However Sellers (affectionately known as 'Sahib' in cricket circles) has had a long career serving the South Australian Cricket Association (SACA) in both selection and administrative roles, and recently became a life member of the SACA. He was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in the 2013 Australia Day Honours, for "service to the sport of cricket, particularly as an administrator."
