South Africa's bowling coach Allan Donald s putting his full confidence and support behind the trio of fast bowlers who have been picked to take on Australia.
The Proteas begin their tour with a three-day game against a strong Australia 'A' side in Sydney on a pitch that is far bouncier than Donald remembers from his previous visit.
Allan Donald has turned down the chance to continue as New Zealand's bowling coach, instead choosing to pursue a position with Cricket South Africa.
He had verbally agreed terms and conditions before informing New Zealand Cricket (NZC) that he had changed his mind.
Former South African fast bowler Allan Donald has joined up with the New Zealand coaching team on a short-term basis as bowling coach during the One-Day International series against Pakistan and the 2011 World Cup.
The 44-year-old has recently finished a stint coaching in Zimbabwe and has previously held jobs with Warwickshire and England.
