Adam Marc Bacher (born 29 October 1973 in Johannesburg) is a South African cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and a right-arm medium-pace bowler. He is the nephew of former South African captain and cricket chief Ali Bacher.

Biography[edit]

Bacher entered South African cricket in 1995/96 in the Under-24 side which toured Sri Lanka and made his Test debut against India at the back end of the following year. Having had a mostly unsuccessful start to the season, his form picked up in Australia where he put in an innings of 96. He continued to impress for the next two years, but after poor form against England and the West Indies, he spent seven years out of one day cricket. He is best remembered for a spectacular catch he took while fielding deep to remove Sachin Tendulkar in the 1996 test series against India.

Bacher was picked once again in 2005 for an English One Day International, but he only played the first game of the one day series, and was dropped thereafter, following an extremely poor shot to a Mathew Hoggard delivery.
