Donald: Priviledge to work with AB and Virat

Royal Challengers Bangalore bowling coach Allan Donald says he is in awe of AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli's efforts in the IPL, and is glad they're on his team and his bowlers don't have to face them.

South Africa Test and ODI skipper De Villiers and India counterpart Kohli have formed a good partnership for RCB over the years, and Donald feels they are invaluable in terms of runs and leadership.

The pair have put on three century stands in the first few games of the season alone, and Donald said: "I'm just glad I'm the bowling coach who doesn't have to talk about them in bowlers' meetings.

"(They're) two of the best young players in the world that you wish to see in one dressing room.

"What they bring, not just in terms of the quality of their cricket, but also in terms of their leadership, (is great) for any young Indian or any young player that's in the same dressing room as them. (They) can just learn so much (from) those two.

"The wealth of experience, they bring a humility to the dressing room, they also bring unbelievable leadership and that's very, very valuable.

"It's a great privilege to be in the same dressing room as those two."
