JOHANNESBURG – Mark Boucher stressed yesterday that the Mzansi Super League won’t be a cure for the plethora of problems facing South African cricket.

“There’s bigger issues that need to be dealt with,” said Boucher, who is the head coach of the Tshwane Spartans in the MSL.

South African cricket has been beset by controversy in recent weeks, following the suspension of three senior administrative officials, which came on the back of a poor tour to India by the Proteas mens team.

In addition, Cricket SA is dealing with a mountain of debt and has also isolated the country’s players, who through their union, the SA Cricketers Association, have taken CSA to court over proposed changes to the domestic playing structure.

“A lot of people may look at this (the MSL) and say we are sugar-coating the whole situation that Cricket SA finds itself in at the moment,”said Boucher.
