Cape Town - South Africa's new bowling coach, Allan Donald, says he wants a no-nonsense approach from his bowlers.

According to the website, ESPN cricinfo, Donald wants to create an attack that is "cocky and arrogant in all the right ways".

He believes bowlers who refuse to back down will be the key to the future success of the Proteas.

"The training ground is meant to be the most hostile.

"That's where it must all happen so when the captain goes in the match, he will be absolutely sure of what everyone can give him."

Donald said he would like to use net sessions to inject a match-day type of antagonism into the bowlers, similar to what he had when he spearheaded the Proteas attack.
