Sir Don Bradman

Sir Don Bradman

Talk about athleticism? Well, this man knew no bounds or limits in the game of cricket! “The Greatest Cricketer Ever”- That is how Sir Donald George Bradman is titled and known today. Born in the year 1908, this Australian cricketer is considered as the “Greatest Test Player of All Time”. No batsman has broken his record yet and that only tells the story behind this legend. He still holds the record of the best and highest Test batting average of 99.94. It is no myth but the reality that he was the icon and idol during The Great Depression decade.
 
“The Don”, as he was also called, gained a lot of name and popularity that the crowd used to get fascinated by his performance and came in large numbers to see his innings. Do you know that he had once scored a century in just 22 balls? Unbelievable! He was a run scoring machine who still has made everyone look dumbstruck at his statistics. He was an unexceptional batsman and he was born to play cricket. Now, his name has become the archetype of perfection and excellence in Australia and in the cricket world.

After the World War II, he captained his team naming them as “The Invincibles” to an unbeaten tour of England. After his retirement from cricket, he lived a very private secluded life with his wife. The legend died aged 92, in the year 2001. While he was alive, the Bradman Museum was opened and the Adelaide Stand was named after him and inducted to the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame in 1996. No doubt, he was the ‘Cricketer of the Century’. In 2009, he was inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame. He is one of the greatest 20th century athlete.
