RIP Clive Rice - tribute to cricket legend

Gauteng Sport, Arts, Culture and Recreation MEC Molebatsi Bopape has paid tribute to South African cricket legend, Clive Rice, who died yesterday after suffering from a brain tumour.

“A legend of the South African cricket has fallen. Clive Rice captained South Africa in their first historic series after the end of isolation in the 1991 Indian tour, which was a symbolic end of apartheid era in our country.

“It was during his (Clive Rice) era and the likes of Graeme Pollock, Jimmy Cook among others that many of us including myself started following the game of cricket,” said MEC Bopape.

He was a reflection of the sport, a true gentleman but fearsome in his game.

“We are indeed deeply saddened to hear of the passing of this giant who went on to play a significant role in developing cricket including (developing) players such as Lance Klusener, Shaun Pollock and Jonty Rhodes, among others.

“On behalf of the entire Gauteng government and its people, we’d like to express our sincerest condolences to the family and loved ones. May his soul rest in peace,” said MEC Bopape. –
