The South African cricket fraternity is still in shock following the resignation of Proteas coach Mark Boucher who will step down after the upcoming World Cup. 
 
Boucher is leaving the hot seat and the Cricket SA has released a statement on the matter with CEO Pholetsi Moseki saying Proteas will now have to look for Boucher’s replacement after the T20 World Cup next month in Australia. 
 
This announcement comes shortly after the Proteas slumped to a nine-wicket defeat in the third and final against England at The Oval on Monday, the English side bagged a 2-1 series win which saw the Proteas slip down to No 2 on the ICC World Test Championship table. 
 
“We would like to thank Mark for the time and effort he has invested in South African cricket as the Head Coach over the past three years,” Moseki said. 
 
“He has helped navigate us through some rough waters following the departures of so many senior players through retirement and has helped lay some strong foundations for the next generation of Proteas.” 
 
As local media reports already speculating on the former South African international’s future, IOL published that Boucher is on the radar of one of the franchises that is set to compete in the new SA20 League starting next January. 
 
Boucher was appointed on a four-year contract by former Cricket SA Director of Cricket Graeme Smith in December 2019, but he will not see out his term. 
 
Meanwhile, his reign at the helm of the Proteas has also been a roller-coaster off the field with the ex-national wicket-keeper embroiled in an alleged racism case with his employers. 
 
The 45-year-old is expected to guide the national side in the upcoming white-ball tour of India from September 28 to October 11 before heading to the T20 World Cup in Australia.
