CWI salutes Sir Clive Lloyd on receiving his knighthood

Guyanese and West Indian cricket legend Sir Clive Lloyd recently received knighthood for his service to cricket. The investiture was performed on Wednesday by the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William at Windsor Castle.

The former captain, one of the most successful in the game’s history, played in 110 Tests and 87 One-Day Internationals, making his Test debut in December 1966 against India.

He captained the West Indies between 1974-84 and 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 a row. Lloyd captained the West Indies in three World Cups, winning in 1975 (with Lloyd scoring a century) and 1979.

In 1971, Lloyd was also named as Wisden’s Cricketer of the Year, while in 2009 he was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.
