Allan Donald is going to be appointed as Australia's bowling coach for their tour of Sri Lanka which begins in July this year.
• Donald will have a powerful motivation to make the most of his imminent appointment, winning a chance to prove wrong the South African set-up that denied him a contract extension.
• Currently working with Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL, Donald recently withdrew from the running for a franchise role with Knights, a South Africa domestic franchise.
• Allan Anthony Donald is a former South African cricketer and one of their most successful pace bowlers.
• In 1997 he came under intense scrutiny from the international cricket media after he was alleged to have used racially abusive language against India's Rahul Dravid in the finals of a one-day series. Allan Donald mentioned this incident in his autobiography, "White Lightning".
