    Centurion at Centurion

    In the last year, several players played their 100th tests - Murali, Dravid, Langer, Pollock, Chanderpaul, Fleming, Kallis, etc. as far as I remember.

    Mark Boucher joined the pack today, when he took the field against Pakistan at SuperSport Park, Centurion (which explains the title of this post!).

    Boucher's been a bug-bear of sorts for most teams for the last half-a-decade or so now. As it is, South Africa normally have a handy lower order. Mark Boucher is the link between a fairly fragile top order and the dependable lower order. He's batted at #6 or #7 a lot of times and done a very good job. He's probably definitely South Africa's best player of spin and has been a pain in the arse far too often!

    He's been a pretty safe wicket-keeper too and has kept to some fairly high-class quicks (Donald, Pollock, Nel). Boucher (380) and Gilchrist (381) will now have a running battle to go past Ian Healy's mark of 395 wicket-keeping dismissals.

    Congrats, Mark!

    A pain in the arse is correct. He definitely needs to be sorted out. So when does he come to India next? Maybe a barrage of off-spinners shall set him right! But in all honesty, he's bloody good.

    Well he was dropped in late 2004 when South Africa toured India. He didn't take too long to make a comeback.
