Clive Lloyd
FameRank: 4

"Clive Hubert Lloyd" Commander of the Order of the British Empire/CBE Officer of the Order of Australia/AO is a former West Indies cricketer. In 1971 he was named Wisden Cricketer of the Year. He captained the West Indies between 1974 and 1985 and oversaw their rise to become the dominant Test cricket/Test-playing nation, a position that was only relinquished in the later half of the 1990s. He is one of the most successful Test captains of all time: during his captaincy the side had a run of 27 matches without defeat, which included 11 wins in succession (Viv Richards acted as captain for one of the 27 matches, against Australian cricket team/Australia at Port of Spain in 1983–84). He was the first West Indian player to earn 100 international caps. Lloyd captained the West Indies in three Cricket World Cup/World Cups, winning in 1975 Cricket World Cup/1975 (with Lloyd scoring a century) and 1979 Cricket World Cup/1979 while losing the 1983 Cricket World Cup/1983 final to Indian cricket team/India.

Money is a subsidiary of success. People always want to sponsor you. Without them there would be no money in sport.

Potentially the single biggest private sector investment in cricket.

I have been very disappointed in the behavior of both teams during this series and I would urge the coaches, captains and managers to get their players together and remind them of the importance of playing in a professional manner.

We didn't have to make any recommendation as such. That pre-dated us so that will be done by the Board. We discussed all aspects of it but there again that was before we came into being.

If he doesn't respect me he should at least respect the position (of match referee), but he made matters worse for himself with his dismissive and rude attitude.

Like in the Packer era, West Indies cricket at its very best has been undervalued and its players underpaid. Like Packer, Stanford is a visionary putting money where his mouth is.

Potentially the single greatest private sector investment in cricket since the Kerry Packer revolution 28 years ago.

I would have given him a lesser fine if it were not for that, but I stopped short of banning him for the last test. I have respect for the England captain and I expected the same from him.
