T20 World Cup: After the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia, Mark Boucher has decided to step down as South Africa’s head coach. Since taking over in December 2019, Mark Boucher has coached the team in two World Test Championships and the T20 World Cup from the previous year. South Africa rebounded in the current edition after a dismal WTC21 campaign and is presently ranked second overall.
He has been in charge of 12 ODI and 23 T20I victories in limited overs. South Africa narrowly missed a spot in the T20 World Cup semifinals due to its net run rate. Boucher’s final bilateral assignment will be the three-match T20I and ODI series away from home against India.

T20 World Cup: Support Staff Of South Africa
Boucher resigned, according to a statement from Cricket South Africa. “To pursue other options in keeping with his future career and personal ambitions.” The CSA will decide on Boucher’s replacement soon. South Africa’s Test team improved under Boucher, moving from seventh place in the rankings in June 2021 to first place in the World Test Championship points table.
Even though they forfeited the ODIs in Australia and are one of the favorites at the T20 World Cup, they are still outside of the running for automatic qualification to the 2023 World Cup, and their chances of making it there are bleak. It is unknown if Charl Langeveldt (bowling), Justin Ontong (fielding), and Justin Sammons (batting) will remain as part of Boucher’s support staff since it is probable that the next head coach will be allowed to select his staff. Boucher maintained the national team’s backing throughout his time being scrutinized.
Dean Elgar claimed the team was negatively affected by the coaching staff’s ongoing criticism.
