"A bowler's bowler"

former West Indies fast bowler turned journaliast

Colin Croft

My most vivid memory of Donald comes from the second Test of the 1998-99 series against the West Indies. He'd been firing on all cylinders in the first Test, and the West Indies batsmen were worried about his speed and aggression. So worried that opener philo Wallace came down with a mysterious glandular fever from which he recovered miraculously a day later. Another opener, Stuart Williams, announced that he had gout and would have to bat at No.7
It's sad to see Allan Donald leave Test cricket,but he has served his country well for 10 years. In this day and age, 10 years of cricket is a lifetime.
