Johannesburg: South Africa could replace their long standing wicket-keeper Mark Boucher with the talented Thami Tsolekile after the tour to England in July and August.
Boucher, 35, has been an iconic figure behind the stumps for the Proteas' since making his Test debut in 1998. Now Cricket South Africa (CSA) is planning to use Boucher in a mentoring or coaching role.
The 31-year-old Tsolekile has played three Tests and 130 matches in a first-class record since 1999. He was given a central contract in February and will probably be chosen as Boucher's understudy for the England tour.
