Another familiar voice in commentary will be missed with the death of Tony Cozier, like another of my favourite commentators Richie Benaud, it is a sad loss, R.I.P. - view external link (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/36254041)

I always remember at being shocked when I discovered he was white. He certainly knew his stuff on West Indian cricket!
Top commentator. R.I.P. Tony.

You are right, of course.

There is a certain aura generated by cricket commentators that doesn't occur in any other game.

In my view its a part of the game and an art form that still continues.

In the recent Lancashire game, with not much happening with Hampshire 4 for there was a big debate in the Commentators room as to where they could see the Lancashire Town Hall through the new cleared site or the Salford's Town Hall.

Long may we hear it. Sadly for Tony his watch has ended.
