Andy Lloyd (born Timothy Andrew Lloyd, 5 November 1956, Oswestry, Shropshire)[1] is a former English cricketer, who played in one Test and three ODIs for England in 1984. His only Test was against the West Indies in June 1984. After making ten runs, and batting for thirty three minutes, he was hit on the head by the West Indies fast bowler, Malcolm Marshall. Despite wearing a helmet, Lloyd spent several days in hospital, and played no further cricket in 1984.[1] He never played for England again. He is the only Test Match opening batsman never to have been dismissed.

He was both club captain (1988–1992)[1] and chairman of cricket for Warwickshire before he announced his resignation on 15 November 2004 due to business difficulties. He led Warwickshire to its NatWest Trophy final victory in 1989 against Sussex at Lord's.

Lloyd made a total of 17,211 runs in all first-class cricket, with 29 centuries, and he took 23 wickets. He is no relation to fellow cricketers David or Clive Lloyd.
