David “Bumble” Lloyd is now one of the most recognisable voices and media personalities in global cricket.
David’s playing career spanned three decades. He first played for Lancashire in 1965 vs Middlesex. His last game for the county (vs. Northants) was in August 1983, signing-off with a first-innings 123. Between these two book-ends, David played in over 400 games, scored over 19000 runs and captained Lancashire (1973-1977).
David’s nine test career included an eye-catching 214 no. vs. India in 1974 and an Ashes tour of Australia (1974-1975).
After his playing career, David stood as a first-class umpire between 1985-1987. He then turned to radio commentary before becoming a coach, first, and with success at Lancashire before being appointed coach of England (1996-1999).
On relinquishing the England coaching role, David returned to his media work, becoming an integral member of the Sky commentary team. As-well-as his commentary work “Bumble” has written four books published by Simon & Schuster.
