Don Bradman’s 107th birth anniversary: 10 interesting facts you must know about the legend!

 

Many consider him to be the greatest to have played the game of cricket, and on the occasion of Don Bradman’s 107th birth anniversary, let’s have a look at ten interesting facts about the Australian legend.

New Delhi: Many consider him to be the greatest to have played the game of cricket, and on the occasion of Don Bradman’s 107th birth anniversary, let’s have a look at ten interesting facts about the Australian legend.

He relied more on his near-perfect technique, almost limiting the chances to get out. It’s not a coincidence that Bradman hit just six sixes in his Test career (5 vs England and 1 vs India).

Bradman is the only Aussie to have twice scored a century and a duck in the same Test.

In his first first-class game on December 16, 1927, Bradman scored 118 runs against South Australia on the Adelaide Oval ground. He was the 20th Aussie to score a ton on first-class debut.

He still owns the record for the maximum number of double centuries (12) in Tests.

It might sound shocking, but Bradman was never stumped in Test matches.

Bradman is the only Test batsman to score more than 5,000 runs against an opponent (5,028 vs England).

Bradman had joined the army in 1940 as a lieutenant. He was discharged in 1941 after suffering from fibrositis thrice.

In his last Test innings, Bradman needed to score 4 runs to complete a batting average of 100! Unfortunately, he was dismissed for a duck, thus retiring at an average of 99.94!

One year post his retirement, he received knighthood for his outstanding contribution to the game of cricket.

In 52 Tests, he scored 6996 runs with 29 centuries and 13 half-centuries
