Ban David Lloyd IMMEDIATELY

Lillian Thomson

International Coach
Anyone listening to Sky Sports this morning would have heard David Lloyd say that England deserved a little "rebuke" for the Inzy dismissal.
Here's a little snippet of action from the 1974/75 England Tour of Australia showing David Lloyd "catching" Ian Chappell. This was not only given out but was described by Wisden as a great catch in series notable for remarkable catches.

Not out your honour

I don't quite know what you're getting at, as I haven't seen that clip yet nor heard what he said, but Bumble's a deity. We should rebel against the current monarchy and set him up as the new king, not ban him.

Ice Creams and signed copies of "The Lion And Albert" (Marriott Edgar) all round.

I like Bumble. He's my fav commentator on Sky now that Holding is currently in Australia.

When he was talking about the donkeys he's seen in Pakistan for around 10 minutes I couldn't stop laughing.

He was at his 'best' when , after Afrid came in and made his intentions clear with a couple of big hit, " England should be happy with Afridi going for his shots" (or words to that effect hinting that this gave England their best chance of getting a wicket).

Afridi kept it up and so did Lloyd till his fellow commentator intervened and said something like " In that case both England and Pakistan will be happy with this" :D

In the last or the series previous to the last English tour of Pakistan bumble went to a ground near a test ground while a match was on and batted, bowled against local boys playing cricket.

I also remmeber him in the West Indies plastic mini swimming pools outside the boundary ropes. He has actually done that at least twice. A picture of bumble looking at a girl with a look only bumble can manage in the pool is quite priceless. They showed it specially in a tour notifying the picture was from a past tour.

Just few of the millions of legendary feats of bumble.

Haha, that's terrible. I fail to see how the umpire could give that out though, he must've had a pretty clear view (as did the batsman).

Earlier there were a lot of crap decisions. The standards of umpiring has improved over the years but because of technology umpires come under scrutiny much more.

Alan Knott must have had a better view then all of them... 8-)

I finally got the link to work. It's so bad it's funny!

I dread to think what Bell's lynch mob would be calling for if that happened now. Crucifixion? Breaking on the wheel? Or, even worse, transportation to the colonies?!? :D
