Profile

David Lloyd was an unlucky cricketer. Many of his admirers - and probably he himself - were disappointed that he did not achieve more. A talented allrounder, and especially a brilliant strokemaker, he was very much, and proudly, a man of what Neville Cardus called the Lancashire hinterland (Accrington). He promised to - and almost did - reach the top; but remained calmly cheerful and humorous despite his setbacks. In short, in his Second Test- against India in 1974- he scored a splendidly fluent 214 not out.
