Melbourne: Mark Boucher, the former South African wicket keeper, has been named as the coach of the Titans’ cricket team for the upcoming domestic season. He will be replacing Rob Walter, who took up the head coach’s role at Otago Volts.
Titans are the reigning champions in all three formats of the game in the Proteas’ domestic circuit and Boucher has big boots to fill when he takes up the job. “I am stoked by the opportunity to get back into domestic cricket. Upon my retirement, I realised I would not be able to play the game any longer, but to be involved in the capacity as coach of a domestic power house like the Multiply Titans is thrilling,” said a thrilled Boucher on Monday (August 22).
It will not be Boucher’s first time in a coaching role. He was involved with the Kolkata Knight Riders in Indian Premier League 2016 as a wicket keeping coach.PTI
