Allan Donald’s run-out in semi-finals
South Africa vs Australia

Allan Donald’s run-out in semi-finals

Allan Anthony Donald (born 20 October 1966) is a former South African cricketer who is now a cricket coach. Often nicknamed 'White Lightning', he is considered as one of the South Africa national cricket team's most successful pace bowlers.

Allan Donald was also part of South Africa’s playing 11 team in Cricket World Cup 1999. Allan Donald was in news for a very long time for his chaotic run-out against Australia in semi-final which ended the match in a tie. Australia went into the final against Pakistan because they finished higher in the Super Sixes.


Australia went on to win the final at Lord's, beating Pakistan by eight wickets after bowling them out cheaply. They would then go on to win the 2003 and 2007 World Cups, and achieve a run of 34 World Cup matches without losing (which finally ended when they lost to Pakistan in the group stage of the 2011 World Cup).
