Steep road ahead for Mark Boucher

Mark Boucher knows that IM will have high expectations for him. MI is a franchise whose goal is to win the championship no matter what.

It would be interesting to see if MI also changes their coaching staff. The head trainer also needs trustworthy members, since he can’t create magic on his own. IM owners would be believing that Boucher can turn around IM’s fortunes, which were in tatters last year. MI should be patient with Boucher and not rush, as getting used to the taste of IPL takes time.
