Former England cricketer-turned-commentator David Lloyd, also known as ‘Bumble’, is one of the best commentators the world has ever seen. He played only 17 international matches in which his highest score was 214 not out. But he was a sensational performer in first-class cricket. His numbers in first-class cricket show his true potential. Even with the ball, his numbers were equally good. He had 237 wickets to his name with his best bowling figures in an innings being 7 wickets for just 38 runs.
