Mark Boucher was the most successful wicket-keeper in the tournament, underlying the importance of a specialist wicket- keeper. India opted to sacrifice their specialist wicket- keeper Deep Dasgupta and asked Rahul Dravid to stand behind the stumps, clearly a plan that failed. Boucher snapped up 12 catches wearing the gloves and proved once again that he is a vital member of the South African team. He blasted a half century off just 19 balls against Kenya and finished the tri- sries with an average of 89.00 and a strike rate of 117.10. Indian players better watch out for Boucher behind and in front of the wicket.
