The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is looking for a new head coach following Stuart Law's decision to quit the post in the middle of April.

The names of Donald, Nottinghamshire director of cricket Mick Newell and former Warwickshire captain Dermot Reeve have all been mentioned as possible replacements for Law.

But Donald made it clear that his allegiance lies with the Proteas.

"I have not had any approach but I would not be interested," Donald told ESPNcricinfo.

"I am doing a job I always wanted to be involved in and I have no inclination to make a move. My interest is with South Africa and I won't give that up at all."

Donald was appointed as South Africa's bowling coach in June last year.

    It would have been a massive pity to lose Allan. Awesome to see his loyalty is well-placed.

      lets see his loyalty when he hears the job pays US$1mil for the 4 years...

      He also knows with the current bowling quartet he can make a name for himself as a bowling coach, in fact he can confirm his name in SA cricketing history in more than one way.
