Don Bradman's performances are unequalled by any batsman in the history of cricket. When Wisden named its 'Five Cricketers of the Century' in 2000, he was the only one chosen by all 100 judges. Nobody has remotely approached his Test batting average of 99.94, or his first-class average of 95.14. Enormous crowds flocked to see him play and his presence in the Australian team was largely responsible for it winning all but one Test series between 1930 and 1948. With perfectly executed drives, cuts, hooks and pulls, The Don' methodically and ruthlessly dictated terms to every bowler he encountered during his long career.
