Donald labels Proteas pace attack best ever

5:59 am on 31 October 2012

South African cricket's bowling coach Allan Donald has labelled the current Proteas attack as the best the nation has produced - even better than the pace battery he once led with devastating effect the world over, and the current crop have taken the team to the top of the world test match rankings.

Led by Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander - rated the top two bowlers in Test cricket - and supported by Morne Morkel, the South Africans have arrived in Australia with an attack sure to test a local batting line-up with more than a few question marks.

South Africa start their tour with a three-day game against Australia A starting on Friday at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
