Sir Clive Lloyd receives Knighthood from The Duke of Cambridge at Windsor Castle

Former Lancashire and West Indian batsman Sir Clive Lloyd has received a knighthood after being recognised in the 2020 New Year's Honours list. 

With the initial ceremony delayed due to Covid, Lloyd finally received his honour for his services to cricket during an Investiture held at Windsor Castle on 12 January. 

Lloyd, who is a Vice President at Emirates Old Trafford and was on the Club’s Committee from 1993 until 2012, made a huge contribution to Lancashire’s one-day successes having first signed for the Club in 1968.

He went on to win two One-Day League titles in 1969 and 1970 and four Gillette Cups between 1970 and 1975, with a memorable 126 against Warwickshire in the 1972 final at Lord’s.

The left-handed batsman from Guyana played in 110 Tests and 87 One-Day Internationals, captaining the West Indies between 1974-84 having made his Test debut in December 1966 against India.

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. In 1971, Lloyd was also named as Wisden’s Cricketer of the Year.

In February 2020, Lloyd became one of the first seven former players to be inducted into Lancashire Cricket's Hall of Fame, during a special - to become annual - ceremony at Emirates Old Trafford. 

Everybody at Lancashire Cricket would like to congratulate Sir Clive Lloyd on receiving his richly deserved Knighthood.
