A disciplinary hearing on racism charges against South African head coach Mark Boucher has been postponed until May. Attorney Terry Motau, chairman of the hearing panel, gave this information. He said Boucher had requested a hearing in May so he could call the current South African players to testify on his behalf.

He told the media: “CSA wants an early hearing of the case as some of the allegations are old. Boucher wants to call some players for testimony, but these players will be on a tour of New Zealand from February 17-12. March and then to Bangladesh from March 18 to April 11. Hearings between visits will cause interruptions.

Boucher, one of the legendary goalkeepers of his day, has been accused by former South African cricketer Paul Adams of singing a song that used derogatory racist words at a post-match gathering.
