Video - Boucher One Of South Africa's Greatest - Ali Bacher

Former Cricket South Africa (CSA) President Ali Bacher has paid tribute to Mark Boucher, who was forced to retire from international cricket due to injury earlier this week.

Boucher suffered a serious eye injury during South Africa's tour game against Somerset and talking to CNN World Sport, Bacher says the wicket-keeper will go down as one of South Africa's 'greatest ever cricketers'.

He talks about Boucher's time playing international cricket, during which he effected 999 international dismissals and played 147 Tests, and gives his view on Thami Tsolekile and AB de Villiers, the contenders to replace him.
