Widely considered one of the greatest allround sportsmen produced by South Africa, by the time Clive van Ryneveld left Oxford University, where he was a double Blue, he had already been capped at cricket and rugby (the latter as a three-quarter for England). He was a talented batsman, useful legspinner and outstanding fielder. He toured England in 1951making 983 runs at 29.78, which included a career-best 150 against Yorkshire, and also enjoyed a good series against New Zealand in 1953-54. But as the demands of his career as a barrister began to take more of his time, his cricketing outings grew less frequent, but he was still able to captain South Africa against England in 1956-57 and Australia the following summer. He retired from cricket and subsequently became a member of the House of Assembly.
