Proteas recently dented their hopes to qualify for the ICC World Test Championship Final by losing the away series to England 1-2.
After the series loss, former South Africa wicket-keeper Mark Boucher, in a press conference, revealed that he would step down as South Africa’s head coach after the T20 World Cup in Australia. The 45-year-old took charge of the team in December 2019.
As per the latest developments, it is reported that Boucher has penned a deal with MI’s new franchise MI Cape Town to be their first head coach ahead of the inaugural season of SA20 in January next year.
CSA CEO Pholetsi Moseki stated that Boucher wanted to pursue other interests outside the national team, indicating that he might have first signed a deal with MI Cape Town before announcing his decision to step down.
