Very sad loved Tony Cozier's commentary. For my money he was up the with Richie Benaud and Tony Greig

BBC's take http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/36254041


Have always loved his commentary and insight. He's a great loss especially to the regrowth of West Indies cricket

A man who was equally passionate during the WI ascendency and decline.

A voice that will be missed.

A wonderful voice of cricket.

Proof you don't need to play cricket to inherently understand it.

Another great gone, get a feeling the current crop of commentators just won't fill the gaps of these greats. Loved listening to cozier, especially on TMS, his passion and knowledge for WI cricket shone through from the moment he started speaking. RIP sir
