Boucher charged over racism

23 January, 2022

South Africa head coach Mark Boucher has been charged by the sport’s national governing body with gross misconduct over allegations of racism.

Former player Boucher, 45, was among a number of Cricket South Africa (CSA) employees implicated in “tentative findings” by the Social Justice and Nation Building commission last month.

CSA said Boucher, who became head coach of the national team in December 2019, would meet disciplinary hearing chair Terry Motau on 26 January to “determine a timetable for proceedings”.

In a series of hearings between July and October last year, a number of black players testified that they had been victims of racism and discrimination while part of the national team.

Boucher admitted playing a part in joining his team-mates in singing songs and using nicknames that caused offence, and has since apologised. (BBC sport)
