However, they are now available for SA since Brexit and Boucher said the two players have added a lot of depth and different dimensions for the national team.
“I think if you look at their performances since they came back, they have been fantastic in the set-ups. I think they have added a different dimension to SA cricket, especially for the Proteas,” Boucher said.
“When you’ve got guys like that coming in and performing, there’s no space for anyone to rest (on their laurels). When Players keep challenging for spots they can only push each other to different heights as we’ve seen in the last few games. I think it’s a very healthy spot for SA cricket to be in,” he said.
With almost everyone raising their hand for a spot in the 15-man squad that will be selected for the T20 World Cup to be staged in Australia from October, Boucher said it will be tough for selectors, but at least they have a strategy they will use to pick the final squad.
