Description:
Hugh Morris (born 5 October 1963, Cardiff, Wales) is the current managing director of England cricket, and a former Welsh cricketer, who played in three Tests for England in 1991. He played county cricket for Glamorgan, captaining the county.

The cricket correspondent, Colin Bateman, described Morris as "a talented, easy-going cricketer".

Life and career

While at Blundell's School, he set several public school's batting records. He also played rugby union for Aberavon.

A left-handed opener, Morris played three Tests in 1991, against the then formidable West Indies. He found their pace attack difficult to handle, scoring 115 runs at an average of 19.16. Nevertheless, Morris was unfortunate not to be selected for that winter's tour to New Zealand. He was Glamorgan's youngest captain at the age of 22 when appointed in 1986, and stood down from the role three years later to concentrate on his batting. He was reinstated as captain in 1993, and remained on the fringe of further Test selection for a number of years, without ever being selected again.

He has worked for several years for the England and Wales Cricket Board, where he has variously been technical coaching director, performance director and deputy chief executive before being appointed to his new role.
