Taskin Ahmed has had the experience of working with many bowling coaches in his playing career as this time he got another one, the legendary pacer of South Africa, Allan Donald.

It is not possible to understand everything by working one day. It will take time to evaluate. But the way it started, fast bowler Taskin is fascinated by the work of the new coach.

Donald was known as ‘White Lightning’ and Taskin’s motto is no compromise with speed. Two people should love to work with each other.

"Have to bowl with strategy...with the new ball is different, the middle overs are different and in the death overs have to add variation as well. This is a high-scoring ground (Wanderers Stadium). You have to do mix-up bowling. Liked it obviously. Today is the first day. It’s not possible to understand everything in one day but liked it so far,” Taskin said.

Former South African pace bowling all-rounder Albie Morkel has been added as a power-hitting coach for a few days. Altogether there are three South African coaches on the team. Taskin sees the benefit of having local coaches before the series.
