About Sir Donald Bradman (from Wikipedia Page)
Sir Donald George Bradman, nicknamed “The Don”, was an Australian international cricketer, widely acknowledged as the greatest batsman of all time.
Bradman’s career Test batting average of 99.94 has been cited as the greatest achievement by any sportsman in any major sport.
During a 20-year playing career, Bradman consistently scored at a level that made him, in the words of former Australia captain Bill Woodfull, “worth three batsmen to Australia”.
A controversial set of tactics, known as Bodyline, was specially devised by the England team to curb his scoring.
As a captain and administrator, Bradman was committed to attacking, entertaining cricket; he drew spectators in record numbers. He hated the constant adulation, however, and it affected how he dealt with others.
The focus of attention on his individual performances strained relationships with some teammates, administrators and journalists, who thought him aloof and wary. Following an enforced hiatus due to the Second World War, he made a dramatic comeback, captaining an Australian team known as “The Invincibles” on a record-breaking unbeaten tour of England.
