South Africa’s head coach Mark Boucher will step down from his post after T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.

“We are extremely grateful to him for the work he has done and would like to wish him well with the next chapter of his career. 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,” Pholetsi Moseki said in an official statement.

“We are deeply saddened by Mark’s decision to leave us, but we also understand and respect his wishes. He is a Proteas legend and has done so much for the game in our country, both on the field and over the last three years off it, which we highly appreciate. He has built a sound platform for South Africa to flourish in all three formats, and I’m sure we will see the results of that at the T20 World Cup next month,” Enoch Nkwe said.
