Former quick claims South Africa set to dominate world cricket

As Australian cricket selectors mull over Matthew Hayden's future, the former South African strike bowler Allan Donald claims the Proteas are set to become the major force.

Hayden was not selected for the one-day squad following his lean run in the recent test series.

But Donald believes Hayden's form slump has coincided with Australia's once vice-like grip on world cricket slipping.

He says the Proteas 2-1 Test series win was a changing of the guard and warned South Africa now have the potential to dominate world cricket for quite some time.
