Profile

Mark Boucher is one of the breed of thriving wicketkeepers to hold the record of most dismissals. He is also a versatile batsman down the order. He debuted against Pakistan on October 17, 1997.

In his second Test match against Pakistan in 1998 and first on home soil, Boucher put up a stand of 195 runs with teammate Pat Symcox for the ninth wicket in one of his finest innings when South Africa were at 166 for the loss of eight wickets.

During his tours to England in 1998 and 1999 World Cup, he displayed grit which made him a part of the Test team for 75 consecutive Tests until he was dropped for the Indian tour in 2004. He became the South African vice-captain when Shaun Pollock replaced Hansie Cronje as the skipper. He was also named captain for some tours.
Boucher has ably concluded many run chases for his side. He scored a triumphant 50 as South Africa impeccably chased Australia’s 434 for four at Johannesburg in 2006.

A few months later he hit the second fastest century in ODIs reaching the hundred off just 44 balls against Zimbabwe on his way to an unbeaten 147 off 68 balls with ten sixes and eight fours; not surprisingly for Boucher as he has a high career strike rate.

The stumper is hailed as one of the greatest wicketkeepers in the world today.
