GCB sadden by the passing of Tony Cozier

The executives and staff of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) are deeply saddened by the passing of the legendary Winston Anthony Lloyd “Tony” Cozier who died at age 75 yesterday, following an illness.

Cozier was one of the most respected cricket journalists, analysts and historians in the world and was among the best that came out of the Caribbean. His name goes simultaneously with West Indies cricket as he covered almost every series they played in since 1962. His passing is a great loss to the cricket fraternity across the world. It is safe to say that in many years to come, stories would be told about his exemplary and stalwart work.

To the family and friends of Tony, we at the GCB share your pain and grief and extend our most heartfelt sympathies for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. We will miss him, the Caribbean will miss him, the world will miss him and cricket will miss him. Rest peacefully Tony!
