Cricket South Africa’s Social Justice and Nation Building listening to into Proteas coach Mark Boucher has been undermined after former Proteas spinner Paul Adams mentioned he would take no additional half in pursuing Boucher.
Former Proteas spin bowler Paul Adams, whose testimony finally yr’s Social Justice and Nation Building (SJN) hearings is central to a disciplinary case (DC) towards Proteas coach Mark Boucher, will not testify on the latter’s listening to.
Adams, who named Boucher at SJN as one of many gamers who referred to as him a “brown shit” in a staff track greater than 20 years in the past, issued a press release on Sunday saying he had mentioned his piece and would take no additional half in pursuing Boucher.
While Adams appears reluctant to press on with the matter, his refusal to topic his SJN testimony to additional scrutiny at Boucher’s DC significantly weakens Cricket South Africa’s (CSA) case towards the Proteas coach.
Even although Adams acknowledged he by no means wished to “single Boucher out”, the actual fact stays he did simply that — by naming him on the SJN. And with out the chance for each CSA and Boucher’s authorized representatives to check Adams’ SJN statements, the case towards the coach has been undermined.
