The history of Test cricket has been around 144 years. Many records were made and broken during this period. Many bowlers troubled the batsmen and on the other hand many batsmen put records of runs but despite all this, the person who is still considered as a batting legend is named Sir Donald Bradman.
Born in New South Wales on 27 August 1908, the Australian batsman achieved such a feat in his era, which became an example. Bradman was followed by many batsmen who overtook him in runs, centuries and in many other cases, but he could not overtake Bradman or, in other words, could not become bigger than Bradman.
Every batsman dreams of test average
Bradman had a batting average of 99.94 in his Test career. A number which was the dream of every batsman but no one could even get close to it. Today is the death anniversary of the same Bradman. Bradman was 92 years old when he died of pneumonia in 2001 in Kensington Park, South Australia.
