Clive Rice has died at the age of 66 after a lengthy battle with cancer. He was one of cricket's greatest all-rounders in an era of truly great all-rounders. But unlike Ian Botham, Imran Khan, Kapil Dev and Richard Hadlee, Rice's achievements register barely a blip on the international cricket radar.

Submitted by Rick Eyre on February 14, 2015 - 8:12am

In the US they have March Madness. The 64 team knockout contest in men's basketball where fans fill out their bracket and attempt to pick, before the tournament commences, all 63 winners right down to the Championship game. In that futile tradition I give you my February Foolishness, as I attempt to pick the winners of the 2015 Cricket World Cup.
