Boucher may delay retirement
Cape Town - Proteas wicketkeeper Mark Boucher
says he will consider delaying his retirement if coach Gary Kirsten
tries to convince him to make himself available for the tour to Australia at the end of the year.Bouch
er, 35, told Volksblad
that his intentions are still to retire after his 150th Test, which is likely to be the third and final one against England at Lord's in August.
However, he admitted that a Test series against Australia is a massive challenge and should Kirsten try to convince him to play, he would seriously consider it.
"I've always held Gary in high regard, first as a player and now as a coach and if he tried to convince me to stay it will be tough to say no," said Bouch
However, he did make it clear that he's not trying to put any pressure on Kirsten. "I'll also be happy to walk away at the end of the England Test series."
