South African cricket has been rocked by news two of its greatest players of the modern era will be investigated following allegations of racism.

Former captain Graeme Smith is now the country's director of cricket, while Mark Boucher is coach of the national men's team.

The pair were named in an ombudsman's report which includes testimony accusing them of discriminatory treatment of black players.
