From the cover: “Commonly regarded us Test cricket’s number one fast bowler, Allan Donald is respected throughout the world not just for his speed and hostility hut also for his unquenchable spirit. Only four howlers in history have taken 200 wickets in fewer Tests, and Donald has been at the forefront of South Africa’s bid for Test success since their return to the international fold in 1992. In his autobiography, Donald writes openly about his relationships with these and other key personalities at Edgbaston, including the inspirational Dermot Reeve and an increasingly reclusive Brian Lara, and contrasts the unique team spirit during Warwickshire’s trophy-winning seasons with the rifts that developed over the selection of Lara as the county’s overseas player. In the Test arena, Donald describes vividly the highs and lows of spearheading the South African team: the fiercely competitive series against Australia in 1994 and his battles with Steve Waugh; the historic win over England at Lord’s during that summer; two World Cups, including his hurt at being dropped from the side in the 1996 tournament; and his 33 wickets on the 1998 tour of England, during which Donald was fined and given a suspended twelve-month ban by the ICC for criticisms of a Test umpire.”
