Cricket South Africa will have to walk a tightrope between acting swiftly and exercising extreme care with its enquiry into Mark Boucher, making sure that it prioritises being accurate and fair above being fast, writes Lloyd Burnard. 

There is merit in calling for the independent enquiry into Proteas head coach Mark Boucher being dealt with as swiftly as possible, but there is also a need for extreme care that should prioritise accuracy and fairness over speed.

It leaves Cricket South Africa in another potentially sticky position ahead of a landmark moment in the organisation's history.
