David Lloyd - Master Cricket Commentator!

I know this blog only attracts a small audience, but I had to share this......

I was watching England v W. Indies 2nd Test on Sky Sports. England coasting along at 500-odd for 6 and the commentators are speculating on a possible declaration.

England's 12th man brings out a pair of gloves for one of the players and the commentators are deciding the real reason is to get a message to the batsmen about when England will declare.

Lloyd joins in the debate with the comment:-

The captain sent a message from the front - 'Send reinforcements, we're going to advance.' but the message arrived at HQ as 'Send three and fourpence, we're going to a dance.'

At which point commentary ceased as Nasser Hussain and Mike Atherton tried to control their laughter and regain a modicum of composure.

Lloyd really is my hero!!
