David Lloyd: 'Sky cricket commentators don't socialise together'

Former England cricketer David Lloyd reveals that he and his fellow Sky Sports commentators rarely socialise together.

Former England cricketer David Lloyd has revealed that he and his fellow Sky Sports pundits rarely spend time together socially.

The 68-year-old, nicknamed 'Bumble', has given some insight into the various characters within the punditry team, including ex-Australia bowler Shane Warne and former England captain Nasser Hussain.

In an extract, which has been published by the Daily Mail, from Lloyd's new book Last In The Tin Bath, the TV pundit said: "It's a presumption that the Sky Sports commentary team hangs out socially after hours. That is not the case.

"It takes all sorts of different characters to make a team, and Shane Warne and Hussain make quite a contrast. Warnie can be very dramatic early in a morning, regularly warning the producer that he has not had enough sleep. Goodness knows what he has been up to.

"Sometimes Nasser will tell us he has seen enough of us during the day and will stay in his hotel room on his tod. Who do you think the winner is there?"

Lloyd joined the Sky team in 1999.
