Atherton-Donald confrontation: 4th Test (1998, Trent Bridge)

Paceman Allan "White Lightning" Donald in his famous duel with the English batsman Michael Atherton during the Trent Bridge Test Match of 1998.

This duel has since gone down as one of the most electrifying and intense periods of Test match cricket in history. South Africa batted first scoring 374 in their first innings. England responded with 336 Donald taking 5 wickets giving South Africa a slender lead of 38 runs.

In their second innings South Africa were undone by the English bowling attack scoring just 208. This left England with a target of 247 to win the match.
