Clive Edward Eksteen (born 2 December 1966 in Johannesburg) played seven Tests and six One Day Internationals for South Africa. In sixteen seasons at Transvaal (later Gauteng) he took 398 wickets at 30.05, also captaining the team for three seasons.

In March 2018 Eksteen was one of two Cricket South Africa (CSA) officials who were suspended after posing for a photograph with fans wearing Sonny Bill Williams masks in Port Elizabeth during the second Test between the Proteas and Australia[2]. The masks appeared following a series of incidents involving David Warner and the South African cricket team and cricket fans in South Africa. The masks are in reference to a past encounter between David Warner's wife and Sonny Bill Williams. There was wide spread condemnation of a player’s wife being "dragged through the mud" as an attempt "to shame her for her past.[3][4]"

Eksteen in May 2018 was allowed back to work at the CSA after his legal team reached an agreement with CSA for his sanction not to be made public[5].
