Mark Boucher to face the music for alleged racism, timing of CSA charges split Mzansi

By the time you read this, South Africa will either have pulled off a monumental Test and One Day International series double win over India, or lost to the visitors. Amid this excitement, Mark Boucher will be shifting in his chair uncomfortable at Boland Park in Paarl, Sports Brief reported.

As reported in News24, the Proteas head coach was charged by Cricket South Africa for gross misconduct amid startling revelations and allegations made at the Social Justice Network hearings.

According to ESPN Cricinfo, the charge pertains to his handling of the BLM campaign, his management of former assistant coach Nkwe, and his treatment of then team-mate Adams. South Africans were split about the timing of the charges, with the Proteas on the verge of history against a formidable Indian team.
