When Donald and Pollock bowled together there wasn't a whole lot of difference between their bowling averages :-
Donald alone = 122 wickets at 22.66
Donald with Pollock = 208 wickets at 22.02
Pollock alone = 232 wickets at 24.31
Pollock with Donald = 189 wickets at 21.66
Look at how close Donald's and Pollock's figures are. The averages are all around 22, the best in this analysis. Donald bowled as effectively without Pollock while Pollock needed the pace of Donald a bit more.
