Indian Premier League side Rajasthan Royals today appointed former CEO of the Professional Cricketers Association (PCA) Sean Morris as its new chief executive officer.

As PCA CEO, Morris was instrumental in convincing the English players return to India after last year's Mumbai terror attacks.

"I am delighted that Sean will be joining the Rajasthan Royals management team. He is well respected by players around the world and we look forward to him helping us build on the phenomenal successes that we have enjoyed so far," Rajasthan Royals captain Shane Warne said in a statement.

A former Hampshire player, Morris himself was looking forward to be part of the team that won the inaugural Indian Premier League.

"The Rajasthan Royals are a huge success story and I am thrilled to be joining such a progressive and successful organization," Morris said.

The Rajasthan Royals today announced the appointment of their new Chief Executive Officer, Sean Morris.

Former Hampshire player, Sean Morris (41), has been appointed Chief Executive of Rajasthan Royals. Morris had six seasons at Hampshire in the 1990s before injury curtailed his cricket career. Following his retirement from professional cricket, he joined Dunlop Slazenger where he was responsible for establishing Slazenger as a leading UK cricket brand. Part of Slazenger's success came through the strong supplier relationships established with Indian cricket manufacturers.

In January 2008 Sean was appointed as CEO of the Professional Cricketers Association (PCA) where he guided the PCA through possibly the most turbulent period in the game's history and amidst this backdrop he built bridges with all the major stakeholders in the game including the ECB, the MCC, the Counties, the ICC and the IPL. His involvement in the England team returning to India after the Mumbai attacks and his delivery of a window for England players to participate in the IPL demonstrates his close affinity with Indian cricket.

Sean will assume immediate responsibility for the Rajasthan Royals, and he will be particularly focused on development of the brand outside of India.

Manoj Badale, Chairman of Rajasthan Royals said: 'Sean represents a great addition to the outstanding existing management team. He brings a strong mix of skills, and a real enthusiasm for the IPL. His international experience and relationships afford us great scope to continue to build the brand across the world.'

Shane Warne, Captain of the Rajasthan Royals, said: "I am delighted that Sean will be joining the Rajasthan Royals management team. He is well respected by players around the world and we look forward to him helping us build on the phenomenal successes that we have enjoyed so far”.

Sean Morris, CEO said: “The Rajasthan Royals are a huge success story and I am thrilled to be joining such a progressive and successful organization. On the field they are the most innovative and charismatic IPL side and have developed a huge international following. The vision and professionalism of the Club is second to none, and I look forward to working with the players, the board, our sponsors and the fans to build on the huge achievements so far.”
