Donald tips Morne Morkel to be the new 'White Lightning'
Melbourne, Dec 11 (IANS) Former South African tearaway Allan Donald sees in Morne Morkel the potential to become a devastating bowler who would dominate world cricket.
Donald, whose raw pace made him famous as 'White Lightning', said Morkel is a rare talent.
Donald, speaking to SA Cricket magazine, told how he has mentored Morkel from close quarters in his role as bowling coach at English county side Warwickshire.
'It is scary that he is as good as he is after a handful of Tests,' Donald, who took 330 wickets in his glorious Test career, was quoted as saying in The Australian.
'If he's not put under unnecessary pressure and is managed well, he'll surpass anything I achieved in my career.
'We haven't even come close to seeing his best yet and I can't wait for him to start dominating batting attacks.
'Manage him well and he could dominate world cricket,' Donald said.
With a brutal top speed of about 150km/hr - and with a release height of about 275cm, it is Morkel's steep bounce which is considered to be a real threat to Australia's ageing top order.
