Bloemfontein - Allan Donald in canary yellow?

It sounds almost unthinkable, but 'White Lightning' has revealed that Australia are also interested in his services as a bowling coach.

The former leading bowler of the South African cricket team has revealed to Sport24 that he received a call from the Aussies hours after New Zealand offered him a new two-year contract.

"I was quite surprised. They just wanted to know whether I was available."

The 44-year old Donald said that he had not yet made a decision. He will discuss the issue with his wife Tina when she returns from England.

According to Donald, the contract with the Kiwis stipulates that he will be involved for 10 months in a year. He believes the Aussies’ interest is due to the good exposure he got with the New Zealand team.

The Kiwis made the semifinal of the recent Cricket World Cup in India.

Donald also said that Australian fast bowler Brett Lee, during the recently-concluded World Cup asked him in a roundabout way about his future plans.
