Cape Town - Former South African fast bowler Allan Donald will be leaving his assistant coach position at the English county club, Kent.

According to the club's official website, Donald will be leaving upon the completion of his two-year stint at the end of this season.

Last month, the 52-year-old was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame in London.

On leaving the county, Donald said: "It's been a great experience working with (coach Matt) Walks and the whole squad at Kent.

"Over the past two seasons, it’s been hugely rewarding to see the development of young and exciting players.

"There's a squad of players here that is hungry to learn and it has been great to be a part of the team that has set up a culture and values that will stand Kent in good stead for the future.?"

Kent's director of cricket, Paul Downton, said: "Allan has been an invaluable addition to our coaching staff for the past two seasons.

"We have benefitted hugely from 'AD' bringing his Test Match intensity to the dressing room, as well as from his coaching skills and experience as we look to build a top class bowling attack across all formats.

"Allan is of course a legend of the game, as shown by his recent induction into the ICC Hall of Fame, and he has been a fantastic mentor to the players here over the past two years.

"Everyone at the club would like to thank Allan for all he has done here at Kent and wish him well in his future endeavours."
