Mark Boucher gets relief, Cricket South Africa gives clean chit in racism case

Cricket South Africa Drops All Charges Against Mark Boucher: Cricket South Africa (CSA) today gave a clean chit to former wicketkeeper and current coach Mark Boucher in a racism case, days after former captain Graeme Smith was acquitted of racism charges.

Cricket South Africa said in its statement that many allegations including racism against them have been withdrawn. The CSA board had received a report in December 2021 from the Independent Social Justice and Nation-Building (SJN) Dumisa Ntsebeja, which made several allegations against Boucher. After this he ordered an inquiry into the entire matter.

The CSA initiated proceedings in accordance with the recommendations of the SJN report, which gave Boucher an opportunity to respond to the allegations. “The CSA Board has now decided to formally withdraw all disciplinary charges against Boucher, including those arising out of the investigation following the resignation of NKV,” he said.

He added, “Paul Adams (former left-arm spinner from South Africa) recently withdrew from testifying against Boucher during a disciplinary hearing. In doing so, Adams said that his statement was expressed during the SJN process. The concerns were about the team.”

The CSA eventually concluded that none of the three charges against Boucher were found to be true. A recent decision by Hamilton Menetze and Michael Bishop in the Graeme Smith arbitration indicated that the charges against Boucher would also be dismissed.
