Bumble has become the one constant for passionate English fans in cricket's rapidly changing landscape. He has earned cult status as a commentator and pundit, with viewers loving his unerring dedication to the game's great fables.
The World According to Bumble: Start the Car revels in the quirkier and humorous side of cricket, while offering behind-the-scenes action of Lloyd's years spent following cricket around the globe, from Accrington to Lahore.
Bumble waxes lyrical on everything from the genius of Shane Warne to the merits of a Lancashire hotpot … and the delights of finishing the day with a couple of pints and a curry.
Enjoy the camaraderie that exists among the SkySports team - including former England captains Sir Ian Botham, Michael Atherton, Nasser Hussain, and David Gower - and laugh out loud at the stories and anecdotes which have forged Bumble's character.
Whether he is holding up play to retrieve lost balls from the top of sight-screens, or enacting mock pitch reports from car parks, Bumble is capable of stealing the limelight at all times.

A really enjoyable listen
Thought this was a book that would make me smile and it did not disappoint. Only part I did not enjoy was a bit in the middle where he read various newspaper reports but overall a fun time was had and I will be following this up with another of bumble's books.
He has a great voice to settle you down, he sounds like everyone's favourite uncle.
