In this text, Allan Donald reviews his relationship with key players and backroom staff - including Bob Woolmer, Dennis Amiss, Dermot Reeve and Brian Lara - and contrasts the unique team spirit during Warwickshire's trophy winning seasons with the later rifts that developed over the selection of Lara as the county's overseas player. In the Test arena, South Africa's return to the international fold in 1992, with Donald to the fore, began tentatively, leading to a fiercely fought series with Australia home and away in 1994, and culminating in the 1998 tour of England, their first since the ban. Donald's ferocious assault on Mike Atherton at Trent Bridge was one of the most hostile passages of fast bowling ever witnessed, and by the end of the summer South Africa's leading strike bowler had bagged 33 wickets.
