The Cricket South Africa (CSA) has recently revealed that their men's cricket team head coach Mark Boucher will step down from his role after the conclusion of the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. 

Former South Africa wicketkeeper-batter Mark Boucher was appointed as the Proteas head coach in December 2019, and led the team to 10 Test wins as South Africa are currently on the second place in the ICC World Test Championship table.

According to the CSA, the decision of stepping down from the head coach role came after Boucher decided to  pursue other opportunities in line with his future career and personal objectives. Before the upcoming T20 World Cup, South Africa will tour India  from September 28 to October 11 for the white-ball series.

The CSA quoted CEO Pholetsi Moseki as saying, "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. 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.

"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.”
