Hugh Morris (born 5 October 1963) is a Welsh former cricketer, who played in three Tests for England in 1991. He played county cricket for Glamorgan, captaining the county, and after several senior roles for the England and Wales Cricket Board he returned to Glamorgan as chief executive and director of cricket in August 2013.
The cricket correspondent, Colin Bateman, described Morris as "a talented, easy-going cricketer".
Life and career
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. 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 worked for several years for the England and Wales Cricket Board, where he was technical coaching director, acting chief executive and deputy chief executive before being appointed to chief executive. In August 2013 he returned to his native Glamorgan as chief executive and director of cricket.
