Allan Donald preaches aggression

Allan Donald became England’s bowling coach at the start of summer. Today marks the fiftieth occasion when an England bowler has said something along the lines of: “AD’s just been telling us to go out there and be really aggressive.”

It was James Anderson on this occasion, but Ryan Sidebottom and Chris Tremlett have said pretty much the same thing at one time or another and we’re pretty sure someone else has as well, but we can’t be bothered looking for the quote. Is this the only thing that Allan Donald’s been telling these guys?

Who cares? It seems to be working. Allan Donald’s PHILOSOPHY OF RAGE is clearly the way forward.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. Being outrageously young i can’t remember alan donalds rage that much apart from that test were he attacked Athers with such force if it’d been off a pitch he would have been arrested for GBH.

    It was however at that moment i realised that fast bowling was the single greatest thing in the WORLD
