Morkel lauds Donald's impact
Cape Town - Proteas fast bowler Morne Morkel says bowling coach Allan Donald's knowledge of New Zealand conditions is proving vital on tour.
The Proteas have started well in the limited overs version of their New Zealand tour, winning the T20 series and on Wednesday took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match ODI series.
Morkel, who was named Man of the Match after claiming five for 38 in South Africa's six-wicket win on Wednesday, said Donald definitely played a big part in their success.
"Allan is very good with the bowlers. Due to his previous involvement with New Zealand (Donald was the Kiwis' bowling coach last year) he obviously knows the conditions. His knowledge is awesome for us," Morkel told the Volksblad
Morkel said he was happy to come to the fore in a big match like the one in Napier and is looking forward to Saturday’s final ODI in Auckland.
He feels the conditions will be suitable as the ball skids through more there and the bowlers also get a lot of bounce.
He did, however, note that bowlers also have to be careful as it (Eden Park) is a very small ground.
