Cape Town - The journalist who hounded Faf du Plessis at an Australian airport on Monday deserved a 'klap', says former Proteas wicketkeeper Mark Boucher.

Du Plessis was approached by Nine Network reporter Will Crouch at Adelaide airport with the journalist relentlessly pushing for a response to questions over the Proteas skipper being charged for changing the condition of the ball in the second Test. 

With Proteas team management instructing Crouch to leave Du Plessis alone, and with Crouch then ignoring those instructions, a nasty situation followed.

Cricket South Africa (CSA) have since lashed out at the journalist and at Channel Nine, and the latest to lend his voice to the discussion was current Titans coach, Boucher. 

Taking to Twitter, Boucher vented at the journalist.

"He's lucky he didn't get a klap! He should have!" Boucher wrote.

Earlier in the day, veteran batsman Hashim Amla also lashed out at the reporter.

"Disappointed.. such provocative behaviour from reporters. Let a man walk in peace. Ask with manners n courtesy and u prob will get a response," he tweeted.
