Mark Boucher said : “You could look back and say that the big moments cost us on this tour, but for me as a coach, we’ve spoken about them and will continue to try and get through to the guys that they need to improve and not make the same mistakes again. If we can do that, we’ll be going in the right direction. The way we played some of the big moments was disappointing. We played ourselves into the game and found stupid ways to get ourselves out of the game again,” “The nice thing about T20 cricket is that you can analyse each moment. In the first T20, there was a problem with the batting from overs six to 10, so we could have done better there. In the second game, things went to plan but in the last game, losing three or four wickets in the space of three overs was always going to put is under pressure” External link

Mark Boucher said : “We’re bowling a lot of yorkers at training, so that’s what is being done about them and we also see the stats on TV. It is something that we continuously work on, but it’s difficult when there’s a lot of dew around. It’s hard to judge the guys on that, but I also think Pakistan’s death bowling also wasn’t that good,” “We’re also trying to get quite a few players to be options at the death now and the only way for that to happen is to put guys under pressure. The more we can get guys to do this, the more options we’ll have. In this particular tour, we tried out other guys, so we are working on it” External link

Mark Boucher said : "It was disappointing. If you want to have a shot of winning an overseas series, you need your senior players who have been in those conditions before, they should know what to expect. You need your senior players to stand up and unfortunately, it didn't happen in this series," "I can't really put my finger on it, but if you are going to win a series away from home, you need senior players to stand up and perform and that didn't happen" External link

Mark Boucher said : "We really didn't have these batting collapses because we had all-rounders. In the recent past, we haven't had the all- rounders. We added the extra all-rounder and it didn't seem to work, even though it seemed to work a bit in the first innings," "We put ourselves under pressure by being four down early, got some momentum, but gave it away. We're in the subcontinent but the new ball did the trick. Collapses can happen, but not to the extend of losing seven wickets. That's a major batting collapse. Our match awareness with the new ball wasn't the best and it's the reason why we suffered the batting collapse" External link

If you look at the amount of time we’ve got in the game, we’ve got to look at going for a win, the run-rate is very gettable.

Mark Boucher said : “We cannot hide behind it being a young batting unit, the nation wants performances but we cannot come out of today with our heads held high, it was a lacklustre performance. The fight needs to come in as a group, but technique and upskilling the team is something I have to look after.

Dwaine Pretorius said ( about Mark Boucher ) : “I hoped I would get a bowl from the Wynberg side all day because there was a bit of nibble from that end. Things went my way today and it was quite cool because it’s the first time I’ve really experienced the Barmy Army, although a lot of them got burnt today. It’s just a great environment with the Proteas now, with Kallis, Boucher, Harris and Langeveldt, there’s such experience we can feed off,” External link

Mark Boucher said : “You could look back and say that the big moments cost us on this tour, but for me as a coach, we’ve spoken about them and will continue to try and get through to the guys that they need to improve and not make the same mistakes again. If we can do that, we’ll be going in the right direction. The way we played some of the big moments was disappointing. We played ourselves into the game and found stupid ways to get ourselves out of the game again,” “The nice thing about T20 cricket is that you can analyse each moment. In the first T20, there was a problem with the batting from overs six to 10, so we could have done better there. In the second game, things went to plan but in the last game, losing three or four wickets in the space of three overs was always going to put is under pressure” External link

Mark Boucher said : “We’re bowling a lot of yorkers at training, so that’s what is being done about them and we also see the stats on TV. It is something that we continuously work on, but it’s difficult when there’s a lot of dew around. It’s hard to judge the guys on that, but I also think Pakistan’s death bowling also wasn’t that good,” “We’re also trying to get quite a few players to be options at the death now and the only way for that to happen is to put guys under pressure. The more we can get guys to do this, the more options we’ll have. In this particular tour, we tried out other guys, so we are working on it” External link

Mark Boucher said : "It was disappointing. If you want to have a shot of winning an overseas series, you need your senior players who have been in those conditions before, they should know what to expect.

Mark Boucher said : "We really didn't have these batting collapses because we had all-rounders. In the recent past, we haven't had the all- rounders. We added the extra all-rounder and it didn't seem to work, even though it seemed to work a bit in the first innings," "We put ourselves under pressure by being four down early, got some momentum, but gave it away. We're in the subcontinent but the new ball did the trick. Collapses can happen, but not to the extend of losing seven wickets. That's a major batting collapse. Our match awareness with the new ball wasn't the best and it's the reason why we suffered the batting collapse" External link

You can't put guys in cotton wool and just have them bowl six overs and think they are ready for a Test match. You can't just say to a guy rock up and bowl 20 overs now.

Dwaine Pretorius said ( about Mark Boucher ) : “I hoped I would get a bowl from the Wynberg side all day because there was a bit of nibble from that end. Things went my way today and it was quite cool because it’s the first time I’ve really experienced the Barmy Army, although a lot of them got burnt today. It’s just a great environment with the Proteas now, with Kallis, Boucher, Harris and Langeveldt, there’s such experience we can feed off,” External link
