The CBE is the highest-ranking Order of the British Empire award, followed by OBE and then MBE. Sir Clive Lloyd and Eoin Morgan received CBEs for their services in the field of cricket. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge conferred the two World Cup-winning skippers with the awards.
Sir Clive Lloyd led the West Indies to glory in the inaugural Cricket World Cup in 1975, leading the way with a century in the final. West Indies defended their crown in 1979 once again under the leadership of Sir Lloyd.
Eoin Morgan led England to their maiden ODI Cricket World Cup triumph in 2019. England are the reigning champions, having won a thrilling final against New Zealand at Lord's. After the game ended in a tie, the following Super Over was also tied with England adjudged the winners on boundary count.
