Cricket: Allan Donald leaves Bangladesh after criticising the captain

# Cricket: Former Proteas ace Allan Donald will leave his position as Bangladesh’s fast-bowling coach after the World Cup after criticising captain Shakib Al Hasan’s role in the time-out controversy. Al Hasan appealed for the wicket of Sri Lankan veteran Angelo Mathews because it took him longer than the prescribed two minutes to take strike when his helmet’s strap broke. Donald said he was shocked and the incident overshadowed Bangladesh’s clinical performance. His employers weren’t happy with his public criticism, and he decided not to request an extension of his contract.
