Sir Donald George Bradman, "The Don", (1908-2001) is acknowledged as the greatest batsman of all time. His career Test average of 99.94 is cited as the greatest achievement by any sportsman in any sport. The story of him practising with a cricket stump and golf ball is part of folklore. By age 22 he had set many records some of which still stand. Bodyline was devised by the England team to curb his scoring. In 1948. he returned to captain "The Invincibles" on an unbeaten tour of England

The Almighty Don Bradman

Is that really him? It's 1938 and Don Bradman walks down the Strand in London, a shortish man at 1.70m but a giant in the minds of the awestruck children trailing after him, like puppies. Eyes straight to camera, impeccably attired, Bradman, then 30, is as cool and as confident as Don Draper from 1960s-era TV sensation Mad Men. And it's no wonder he glows with self-assurance.
