LONDON: Renowned English cricketer and commentator, David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd had some precious words to say about Pakistani cricketers, here is what he said.
David Lloyd on Shahid Afridi’s batting: “He wants to hit the ball from Karachi to Lahore. He thinks he can do it & has the strength to do it.”
Lloyd on Wasim Akram: “How do you coach Wasim Akram? You don’t! You just make him comfortable. In the Lancs [Lancashire] dressing room everyone knew him as King”
Bumble’s comment on speedstar Shoaib Akhter: “I saw Shoaib Akhtar at Worcester. He set off for 4 overs with his full run up, but bowled his last 2 overs off about 4 paces.”
Lloyd’s precious words about ‘King Misbah’: “When Misbah speaks, he speaks quietly & sensibly and you can tell that he can calm the volatile lads in the team down.”
