Cricket West Indies (CWI) has congratulated West Indies legend Sir Clive Lloyd on receiving his knighthood. This information was received on Thursday. One of the most successful captains in cricket history, Clive Lloyd has been honored for his services to cricket. He was honored at Windsor Castle by the Duke of Cambridge on Wednesday.
CWI President Ricky Skerritt said, “On behalf of all those involved in HLCWI and West Indies cricket, I would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to Sir Clive for the honour. Sir Clive holds a special place in the history of cricket. The player who won the first Cricket World Cup made West Indies proud all over the world.
“That Lord’s win was a very important moment in West Indies cricket when we showed that we are the best team in the world under Sir Clive,” he said. And cricket fans should welcome this accolade.
Sir Clive’s leadership defeated Australia at Lord’s in the final of the first Cricket World Cup tournament played in 1975. Four years later, he again led West Indies to the world title. This time they defeated England at the historic site.
