West Indian cricket legend Sir Clive Lloyd CBE AO is a retired player who now works as a sports speaker and coach both in the UK and in his home country.
Clive was a tall and powerful middle-order batsman, who occasionally took part as a medium-paced bowler. During his youth, he was also often called on to take the position of the strong cover-point fielder. During his Test career, Clive hit an astonishing 70 sixes which impressively placed him at the 14th highest number of any player. Since retiring in the mid-1980s Clive Lloyd has worked as an after-dinner speaker, cricket manager, coach and commentator in both the UK and in Guyana.
From 2001 to 2006 Clive acted as an ICC match referee. This gives Clive a unique spin to his speeches as he is able to draw on both experiences of playing the game and being on the sidelines judging others. After his retirement in the 1980s from cricket Clive has also taken up coaching and commentary surrounding the sport, further deepening his knowledge and expertise of the sport.
Playing for British side Lancaster for almost twenty years Lloyd was popular both at home and abroad. He continues to work in the UK as a cricket speaker and has attended a number of Lancaster cricket club after dinner speaker events.
Whilst playing for Lancaster Clive Lloyd CBE also played for Guyana on a domestic level, serving with them from 1964 until 1983. Lloyd’s work as a cricket speaker covers his time at both teams and, thanks to his long-standing relationship with both teams, is able to speak in detail about the dynamics of each club individually.
As well as working as a cricket speaker for his domestic clubs Clive Lloyd is available as a sports speaker for his national team, the West Indies cricket team, with whom he played for 12 years and garnered an impressive 125 caps. The first player to reach 100 international caps for the country, Clive Lloyd captained the West Indies to three world cup tournaments winning in 1975 and ’79.
Clive has been awarded heavily throughout his career. In 1985 he was awarded the honour of Officer of the Order of Australia, in recognition to his services to cricket. Later in 2009, Clive was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall Of Fame, increasing his popularity and prominence within the cricket field. In the 2020 New Years Honours Clive was knighted for his services to cricket.
