Clive Lloyd

West Indies
Born on 31 August, 1944 at Queenstown, Georgetown, British Guiana.
Nickname: Hubert
Test debut: Against India in the first test at Bombay in 1966-67
Last series: Against Australia, in Australia in 1984-5.
Left-handed middle order batsman, right arm medium pace bowler and brilliant cover fielder early in his career.
Clive Hubert Lloyd will always be remembered for his loping walk and his commanding presence in the middle for the West Indies with a heavy bat and murderous strokes, played without compromising on technique, all around the wicket. He captained the West Indies in 74 tests - more than any other captain in the history of cricket - and led them to a record number of successive wins.
Lloyd made 7,515 runs at an average of 46.67 in tests and a highest score of 242 n.o. against India at Bombay in 1974-75. He scored 19 hundreds and 39 fifties and claimed ten wickets and ninety catches during an illustrious career. In 87 one-day internationals, he scored 1,977 runs at an average of 39.54 and claimed eight wickets.
Lloyd took over the captaincy of a talented West Indies team from Rohan Kanhai in 1974-75 and led them to a 3-2 win in India. The West Indies then won the Prudential World Cup in England in 1975 with Lloyd contributing a swashbuckling 102 in the finals. The winter tour to Australia was a disaster with a 5-1 defeat, but he quickly made amends with wins against India, England and Pakistan. In 1977, he resigned from the captaincy after a bitter argument with his Board over the Packer issue, but returned to lead his side to a win in the 2nd Prudential Cup in 1979. He was looked upon by cricketers as talented as Viv Richards, Des Haynes, Greenidge, Marshall, Garner, Holding and others as a father figure and they gave off their best under him till he retired after the 1984-85 series Down Under. His one disappointment at the fag end of his career was the loss to India in the final of the 3rd Prudential Cup in 1983. It is said that he wept like a child in the dressing room after that match, and wanted to quit the captaincy.
Nominated Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1971
Lloyd was the manager of the West Indies team for a long time after his retirement and has served as ICC match referee in test matches as well as one-day internationals during the last decade. Earlier, he served as a Civil Servant in the Guyana Ministry for Health.

Dimdima is the Sanskrit word for ‘drumbeat’. In olden days, victory in battle was heralded by the beat of drums or any important news to be conveyed to the people used to be accompanied with drumbeats.
