After more than 50 years in the professional game, involved at the top level as a player, coach and now broadcaster, David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd has come a long way since he took his first steps up the cricketing ladder as a teenager playing for Accrington CC. He’s seen a few things in his time and it’s not always been pretty, whether it was watching the Aussie ball-tampering story develop or looking down after he’d been hit a painful blow by Jeff Thomson.

But one lesson has stayed with him since he was drinking a bottle of sarsaparilla: some of the best wisdom, advice and fun happens in the bar at the close of play. Cricket – even at the highest level – is always about more than the game. In Around the World in 8o Pints, we get to see where that approach to life and cricket has taken him. Whether it is sharing a drink with Roses rival David Bairstow or introducing Wasim Akram to the Lancastrian way of doing things, there’s always plenty going on.

From Caribbean parties with Brian Lara, through the stunning scenery of New Zealand and on to the perennial battle to catch Nasser Hussain at the bar, Bumble has experienced it all. He has discovered much about how the game should be played and the true meaning of the spirit of cricket. Around the World in 80 Pints is filled with Bumble’s characteristic wit, insight and knowledge, so come and enjoy a wonderful cricketing ride.
