When South Africa made their comeback to international cricket in 1991, the first series they played was against India. In the squad was a little known fast bowler, Allan Donald, who, after the first match went from being unknown to being universally feared for his sheer pace and swing. He captured five wickets in that match, won the Man of the Match award and there was no looking back. By the time he had retired, had taken 330 Test and 272 ODI wickets respectively.
