Certainly the counties who had elected him were reassured by his stable and predictable demeanour - and the fact that he had been MacLaurin's deputy at the ECB meant that he would be singing from the same hymn-sheet as his predecessor. But many observers felt Morgan was too staid for such a high-profile job, especially compared to the man he beat to the post, the dynamic Surrey chairman Mike Soper.
