David Lloyd is a former English cricketer who played county cricket for Lancashire and Test and One Day International cricket for England. He also played semi-professional football for Accrington Stanley. He is known through the cricketing world as "Bumble" because of the ostensible similarity between his facial profile and those of the Bumblies, characters of Michael Bentine's children's television programmes.
A left-handed batsman and left-arm spin bowler, he played nine Tests, with a highest score of 214 not out, and eight One Day International matches. In first class cricket he was a successful all-rounder, scoring a career aggregate of more than 19,000 runs and taking 237 wickets. He captained his county from 1973 to 1977. Following his retirement as a player, he became a first class umpire, and subsequently Lancashire and England cricket coach, resigning the latter post following the 1999 Cricket World Cup. He then became a renowned cricket commentator for Test Match Special, and later Sky Sports, with whom he currently broadcasts. He is also an author, journalist and columnist.
As an allrounder Geoff Miller was essentially reliable rather than matchwinning, but his batting was sufficiently better than that of rival offspinners John Emburey and Eddie Hemmings to earn him 34 Test caps. In his most successful series, against a Packer-weakened Australia in 1978-79, he topped the bowling averages with 23 wickets at 15.04. Unaccountably for such a correct batsman, he needed 380 innings to compile a maiden first-class hundred, though before that he had twice scored 98 for England, one of them not out. A droll character, he was much in demand in retirement as a brilliant after-dinner speaker and raconteur, and joined the England selection panel in 2000. Eight years later, he usurped David Graveney as England's National Selector - a post Graveney had held for eleven years. Geoff has recently retired from the position.
