TONY COZIER, the voice of Caribbean cricket, is suing president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), Whycliffe “Dave”Cameron for defamation.
Cozier, an icon of broadcast cricket commentary for more than 50 years, is headed to court and seeking damages for defamation over words used by Cameron last May 22 during a meeting at the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies.
Cozier, 75, full name Winston Anthony Lloyd Cozier, has engaged the services of Queen’s Counsel Peter Symmonds.
At that meeting last May, Cameron is purported to have said: “There is no ban on Mr Cozier. The challenge is Mr Cozier has gotten to an age – and everyone needs to agree, that he is not actually seeing very well anymore. And we are being very, very frank about that.
