Former Cricket SA (CSA) president Ray Mali has called for director of cricket Graeme Smith and Proteas head coach Mark Boucher to step down from their respective positions for "peace". 

Pressure has mounted on Boucher's position after his former teammate Paul Adams revealed during the Cricket for Social Justice and Nation-building (SJN) hearings that Boucher was one of the players who referred to the former spinner as "brown shit" during their Proteas playing days.
