  Dead Famous

Clive Edward Butler Rice (23 July 1949 – 28 July 2015) was a South African international cricketer. An all-rounder, Rice ended his First Class cricket career with a batting average of 40.95 and a bowling average of 22.49. He captained Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club from 1979 to 1987.


His career coincided directly with South Africa’s sporting isolation, and his international experience was limited to his post-prime days.


He played three One Day Internationals for South Africa following the country’s return from sporting isolation. He was controversially left out of the squads for the one-off Test against West Indies and the 1992 Cricket World Cup.


On 28 July 2015, Rice died in hospital at the age of 66, suffering from a brain tumour.
