Malachy Bernard Loye , most commonly known as Mal Loye, is an English cricketer who has played first class cricket for Northamptonshire, Lancashire, and England A. Loye is a right-handed batsman, particularly well known for his slog sweep shot against fast bowlers. Deep into a long career, he also finally made his One Day International debut against Australia on 19 January 2007 aged 34 years 113 days.


Return to Northamptonshire

After 7 years away from Northamptonshire, Loye returned to Wantage Road, signing a 2-year contract on 29 September 2009. He was released by the county following the 2011 season. Following his release he joined Buckinghamshire for the 2012 season, making his debut for the county in the MCCA Knockout Trophy against Dorset.

International career

On 4 October 2006 he was called up to the England squad for the Hong Kong Sixes event in November. Loye acted as a wicket keeper for the England team led by Dominic Cork during the tournament.

In January 2007 Loye was playing for Auckland, when he was called up to the England squad as cover for the injured Michael Vaughan, and made his One Day International debut on 19 January 2007 when he was Englands top scorer with 36 runs off 36 balls. Cricket commentator Simon Mann remarked after the game that "Loyes front foot sweep for six off Brett Lee was the stroke of the series so far".
