    Description
    Anything But Murder

    Former England cricket coach David Lloyd tells the full story about his time in charge of a struggling team, his clashes with authority and the difficult characters he has managed in his career. His autobiography is not the run-of-the-mill celebratory jaunt through a trophy-laden career in sport. It is a warm, witty, yet painstakingly honest, appraisal of Lloyd's attempts to rebuild a tarnished England team, to raise morale and strive to modernise what had become an outdated approach to playing the game.

    His was not a smooth or straightforward assignment. He clashed repeatedly with the counties in his efforts to change the structure of the game, he was hounded by the press for his less-than-subtle style of management, and he was severely reprimanded more than once by the England Cricket Board over his passionate outbursts in defence of his team.

    These accounts alongside remarkable frankness in recalling relationships with key personnel, provide a fascinating and at times damning picture of the strengths and weaknesses of cricket in England. Now, as he contemplates a future in television commentary, all the stories that could never be told can be revealed once and for all.
