LEGENDARY FORMER West Indies captain Clive Lloyd has hailed the late international journalist Tony Cozier as “an iconic figure” and says the world has lost “a great man”

Cozier, hailed globally as the voice of West Indies cricket, passed away on Wednesday at age 75 following a brief period in hospital.

Lloyd, who oversaw a halcyon era in West Indies cricket, said Cozier had made an outstanding contribution to the regional and international game.

“It is sad news to hear that the voice of West Indies cricket is gone,” said Lloyd, whose book in the 1980s was co-written by Cozier.

“Tony Cozier was an iconic figure, someone well respected throughout the sporting world, and someone who featured prominently across the landscape of the Caribbean.” (CMC)
