Hugh Morris, the former Glamorgan and England batsman, has been appointed as deputy chief executive of the ECB. Morris, 42, has previously been the ECB performance director.

He will head up the cricket department in addition to his roles as deputy chief executive, and John Carr will take responsibility for the performance of the international team matters.

David Collier, the ECB chief executive, said: "I am delighted for Hugh. He did a magnificent job as acting Chief Executive in the time last year between Tim Lamb departing and my appointment. Hugh's strong cricket background is important for the ECB and, as a former Test player, he brings strong qualities to the management team. His work with the National Academy has been outstanding and has been recognised around the world."

Morris was highly successful and consistent with Glamorgan, scoring almost 20,000 first-class runs at an average of 40.29. He won three England caps in 1991 and also captained England A to South Africa, the West Indies and Sri Lanka as well as becoming Glamorgan's youngest ever captain in 1986.
