Rice slams Smith

Rice, who never played a recognised Test because of apartheid-era isolation of African nation, questioned the leadership qualities of Smith.

“What has he actually achieved as captain? For me, he is too one-dimensional as captain and he shows no enterprising spirit,” said Rice.

The former captain was of the view that Botha would make a better captain than Smith.
“Botha really impressed me as captain when he led South Africa at the beginning of the year to a victory against Australia in a one-day series.

He would be my choice as SA captain in all forms of the game,” Rice added.
