2013-01-04 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Cricket South Africa and Castle Lager’s farewell day for former wicketkeeper Mark Boucher, due to take place today, the third day of the Test match between the Proteas and New Zealand, has been postponed at the request of the former SA wicketkeeper.

It will now take place during the Test series between SA and Pakistan next month.

“Mark has made the request following the sudden death last night of former Western Province cricketer John Commins, who is the father of his agent, Donne Commins,” said CSA acting CEO Jacques Faul.

“We are sorry to hear of this tragedy and extend condolences on behalf of the CSA family to the Commins family and friends.”

Boucher commented: “Donne has been very close to me for most of my career and has been much more to me than a business partner.”
