When David “Bumble” Lloyd, the former Lancashire and England cricketer who became one of the game’s best-loved television commentators, tailored the much-used phrase “start the car” to “start the tuk tuk,” he had no idea what seeds he had sown. The auto rickshaw, or “tuk tuk” that Bumble referred to, might be a worthy object of gentle ridicule, but the man whose batting has become synonymous with tuk tuk, is deserving of the highest praise.
