Cricket fans, you’re missing out if you don’t read a very interesting article about the late Tony Cozier, the internationally renowned commentator who hailed from Barbados.
Written by Vaneisa Baksh, a cricket writer and editor based in Trinidad – her article Tony, the Nightwatchman – featured in the March 2019 edition of Wisen Cricket Monthly, highlights times spent gathering research with Cozier and the loss to the cricket world of “never hearing his voice again.”
Tony Cozier died in Barbados on May 11, 2016 after a long illness; he was 75. Writer Jonathan de Bruin, described him thus:
“He was well respected by players and fans around the world.
For more than 50 years, Cozier’s voice had resonated in homes across the cricketing world through media: television, radio and the written word. He was admired for his passion, insight and enthusiasm, but most of all for his encyclopedic knowledge and love of the game.”
