South Africa’s ‘Mr Safe Hands’
A freak but serious eye injury forced him to call it a day in July 2012; but Mark Verdon Boucher, born on 3 December 1976 in East London, Cape Province; has his place assured in history as South Africa’s greatest wicket keeper-batsman as well as the holding the record for the most dismissals in Test cricket (555). Boucher, who served as Shaun Pollock’s deputy, has also led South Africa in four Test matches, including a victory over Australia. Boucher was also a useful lower middle-order batsman and has some fantastic knocks to his name. Here’s a look at some moments from his illustrious career.
