Smith said Boucher did not deliver because o retirements - but he seemed as deluded as Boucher is for the real reason why Boucher has not delivered,
He is obviously not even aware that the retired players were performance-wise really way below norms when it came to performance. If they stayed on the results would have been even worse than they are since Boucher's appointment,
So why did Boucher fail? The real reason is the chaotic selection of players not based on performance and only on experience or whatever they believe are experience. The main players they brought on board will not make any other international cricket team in any of the Top 8 ranked teams in the world.
And then according to Haysman they buggered up royally like happened in the case of Verreinne. Is that just ignorance or is it real stupidity that caused that stupidity? The other question is how can Klaasen be selected as a captain of any international team purely because in some match format is the captain of the team previously coached by Boucher? The other idiocy to make Elgar - another failure as captain at the Titans, despite the fact that statistically he is ranked at the 10th best batsman in SA.
Unless Smith and Boucher learned from the recent disasters and wakes up to fact - they will do massive damage toc cricket in SA,
