Johannesburg - There is a chance Allan Donald will be appointed as Australia’s bowling coach this week, should they decide to consider a foreigner for the role.

Donald, 44, was interviewed for the role on Monday, and Troy Cooley’s successor is expected to be appointed in the next day or so.

Donald has helped England's bowlers in the past and during this year's Cricket World Cup he was New Zealand's bowling consultant.

Donald gave former England coach Peter Moores, who also played with him for Free State, as a reference, and confirmed he was willing to move house.

From Australia it was reported that Craig McDermott and Allister de Winter were in the running, as well as at least one high profile candidate from overseas.

According to the report, former Australian Test bowlers Jason Gillespie and Andy Bichel were no longer in the picture.

McDermott, 46, coach at the High Performance Centre in Brisbane over the past two years, is seen as the front runner and even joined the Australia on their recent tour to Bangladesh.

Cricinfo reports that De Winter, who only played 21 First Class matches for Tasmania, also survived the first round of interviews and that he could be a surprise appointment.

De Winter, 43, is Tasmania's assistant coach after returning from Bangladesh where he headed their national academy.

He also joined Australia in 2009 for their tour to South Africa, while Tasmania’s bowlers last season did well under him and won the Sheffield Shield title

The new bowling coach’s first responsibility will be a tour to Sri Lanka after which Australia visit South Africa for two, Twenty20's, two Tests and three ODIs.

      Agree. Why the hell isn't AD being considered as the Proteas bowling coach? Basically we need AD, Gary Kirsten as coach - and Jonty as fielding coach - and then we might genuinely have a team of world-beaters!

      Donald Ducking Down Under? @ Jeremy, perfect threesome with Eric Simons as assistant coach, but unfortunately too white for SA my friend. I would not be surprised at all if Vincent Barnes gets the nod for the head honcho position ahead of Kirsten.

      I agree

    And CSA continue to chase away our top performers. The downward spiral continues.
