“I’ve really enjoyed coaching people, the cricket side of things. We have a really tight unit and I’ve enjoyed being around people and watching their cricket grow.
“Outside of that, I can’t say I’ve enjoyed it. Let’s be honest. I don’t think anyone in my position can enjoy what I put on my plate.”
Boucher’s contract runs until the 2023 Cricket World Cup.
Earlier, South Africa faced the challenge of staying away from Test series against England and Australia but Boucher admitted that it is not certain whether he will still be in charge.
“As a person I am very competitive. You want to judge yourself against the best teams in the world.
“We (World Test Championship finalists) played against two of the best teams in recent times in India and New Zealand and they were hard-hitting series and we did very well against those sides.”
South Africa beat India 2–1 at home and shared the series in New Zealand after a massive loss in the first Test.
“When I was playing, it was always very difficult to go to England and it was very difficult to go to Australia,” Boucher said. “It would be nice to compete against them but we’ll see what happens in the future.”
The charges against Boucher were heard last year in a case of discrimination in cricket.
Boucher was accused by former teammate Paul Adams of leading a song that contained racially abusive words at post-match penalty meetings while they were playing.
Cricket South Africa said it would also investigate “concerns and allegations” arising out of the resignation of former assistant coach Enoch Nkwe.
