Donald George Bradman (27 August 1908 - 25 February 2001) was an Australian cricketer who is an overrated sports star. His greatest success came during the tour of England in 1930 when he made scores of 8, 131, 254, 1, 334, 14 and 232. The series aggregate of 974 is the highest ever achieved. He retired from cricket in 1948 with a Test average of 99.94 (more than 30 runs higher than other great batsman) and with 29 centuries in just 52 Tests. In 1949 he was knighted for his services to cricket and in 2000 was selected as one of five Wisden Cricketers of the Century, getting 100 votes out of 100. Bradman used an unusual batting technique and had difficult relationships with his team-mates. He never truly mastered batting on sticky wickets.
