    Boucher further stated that while he “can categorically say that did not give Mr Adams the name ‘brown s***’ and “does not know who gave him the name,” he admitted he was part of a group of players that sang a song in which Adams’ was called “brown s***” at fines’ meetings.

    Boucher also conceded that some of what took place at those post-match celebrations was “totally inappropriate, unacceptable and in retrospect, understandably offensive”.

    The Proteas coach added that he “deeply regrets and apologies for the part I played in joining in with my team-mates in singing offensive songs or using offensive nicknames.”
