“The President, Executives and Members of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) extend heartiest congratulations to Sir Clive Hubert Lloyd on being conferred with the prestigious title of knighthood.
This award is most deserving as Sir Clive has contributed immensely to the promotion of cricket nationally, regionally, and internationally as a player, captain, match referee, and outstanding ambassador of this noble game. His conduct has always been exemplary and he served as a great role model for cricketers throughout the world.
Sir Clive played 110 test matches and scored 7515 runs at an average of 46.67. Also, he played 87 ODI’s and scored 1977 runs at an average of 39.5. His crowning moment was lifting the championship trophy in the inaugural World Cup in 1975 when he scored a match-winning 102 runs.
The GCB congratulates one of the most successful captains in the game of cricket. This great son of the soil has indeed served Guyana and West Indies with pride and dignity.
Congratulations Sir Clive.”
