Boucher likely to retire after England tour

Zeenews Sports Bureau

Johannesburg: South African wicketkeeper Mark Boucher is likely to announce his retirement after his country’s tour of England in July this year.

"I would like to go England and then start a process of trying to get another keeper involved. I think I`ve still got a lot to offer in that department," Boucher, who is part of South Africa`s Test squad touring New Zealand, told ESPNcricinfo.

"My body is getting a little sore, to be honest. The back is starting to play up a bit. If I can manage myself form-wise and it all goes to plan, then after England I will probably look at my career and my retirement."

Boucher has been playing for South Africa since making his debut in 1997. And in the last 15 years he has just missed three Tests.
