Sean Morris was an solid opening batsman who had trials with Nottinghamshire and Worcestershire when at school before joining Hampshire in 1988 while still at Durham University. He was in a side that appeared in three UAUC finals, twice finishing on the winning side. As a sociology graduate he claimed to have completed his studies in Yung's Bar, Bangkok, and played club cricket in Buenos Aires, Cape Town and Perth. In his time at Hampshire he was not able to secure a regular place, with his best season coming in 1994 when he made 686 runs at 49.00, including a career-best 174 against Nottinghamshire, an innings The Guardian suggested might "start the transformation from occasional player to respected regular". There was even talk that he was being groomed as Mark Nicholas' successor as captain. It never quite happened and he was released at the end of 1996 - his last innings was a hundred against Cambridge University - and went into sports marketing, but returned to the game in 2008 when he was appointed chief executive of the Professional Cricketers' Association. It was a short-lived tenure; 18 turbulent months later he stepped down from the role with little to show for his efforts.

India's wretched run away from home began at Lord's in 2011. A young team full of self-belief may have brought it to an end with their victory at the same venue three years later
