The Star cricket writer Stuart Hess says Boucher was a huge talking point at the Social Justice and Nation Building hearings.

Proteas assistant coach Enoch Nkwe Sri Lanka has resigned ahead of the visit to Sri Lanka on Wednesday.

Cricket South Africa announced Nkwe's resignation late on Tuesday. Nkwe "raised concerns about the functioning and culture of the team environment".

_The Star _cricket writer Stuart Hess has more.

From what I understand has been taking place behind the scenes, he officially tendered the resignation at the weekend. The new chairman of Cricket South Africa board Lawson Naidoo and acting CEO tried to make him change his mind but obviously, that didn't work.

In an interesting statement last night Cricket South Africa said they are concerned about the team environment and he was very much a part of that but it also puts significant pressure on Mark Boucher, who is under pressure for other things outside of the team environment because as the head coach, along with senior players, they created environment and that culture.

A lot has been talked about that in the last year or so so it's concerning that Enoch Nkwe would cite that as one of the reasons we would no longer want to be the assistant coach of the proteas.

Boucher is under an immense amount of pressure. He was a huge talking point at the Social Justice and Nation Building hearings. He has addressed the team, according to Temba Bavuma. Bavuma offered no reasons behind daying the team has accepted Boucher's apology.
