Cozier covered almost every West Indies series since 1962, and is one of the most respected cricket writer, broadcaster and historian to have come out of the Caribbean.
Cricket fraternity took to Twitter to mourn the loss of one of the most celebrated commentators.
Former cricketers, presenters and enthusiasts paid their tributes to Cozier, who was the voice of West Indies cricket.
Here are a few such tweets:
