NASSAU, Bahamas – The Caribbean Sports Journalists’ Association (CASJA) joins the cricketing world to mourn the passing of legendary West Indies cricket commentator and writer Tony Cozier.
Cozier died in his native Barbados on Wednesday at the age of 75.
He was popularly known as the voice of West Indies cricket, spanning almost six decades.
“Tony brought Caribbean identity among a list of elite cricket voices including Christopher Martin-Jenkins, Henry Blofeld, John Arlott, Joseph “Reds” Perreira, Bryan Waddle, Fred Trueman, Jim Maxwell, Geoffrey Boycott and Jonathan Agnew, to name a few,” said CASJA president Michael Bascombe.
“Cozier made an invaluable contribution to the Caribbean media and especially to the game of cricket.”
CASJA expresses condolences to the family and friends of Tony Cozier.
