Perth - There was good news in the Proteas' camp on Wednesday after it was learned that Mark Boucher's broken toe is not as serious as initially feared.

The chances are good that he will play in the first Test against Australia at The Wanderers in Johannesburg starting on February 26.

Boucher consulted an orthopaedic surgeon in Adelaide on Wednesday. The diagnosis was that the break was not serious and the toe should heal within three to four weeks.
