The cricket world lost a legend with the passing of West Indies commentator Tony Cozier, and former players, many of whom became commentators alongside the great man, were swift with their tributes.
What a sad day for cricket, especially WI cricket, and the fans. RIP Mr Cozier. Gone but you will never be forgotten ????
