Cozier an icon, says Lloyd

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)
