Cricket South Africa (CSA) has heard with great sadness of the passing in hospital today of Clive Rice, its first ever captain, five days after his 66th birthday after a long battle with illness. After his retirement from the game Rice became the first director of CSA’s National Academy before he travelled overseas to become director of cricket for Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club where he previously had a stellar career as a player. As their captain he led them to the county championship in 1981 for the first time since 1929 and formed an internationally respected new ball partnership with Sir Richard Hadlee of New Zealand. CSA flew the flag at its offices in Johannesburg today at half-mast in tribute to Rice. As a mark of respect the Proteas will wear black armbands in the Test match against Bangladesh starting on Thursday. Ricky Ponting talks about his second double-century against India in 2003-04
