Twitter remembers Don Bradman on his 110th birth anniversary
Today cricketing world is remembering Sir Don Bradman, one of the best player ever who had played the game, on his 110th birth Anniversary.
The former Australian Batsman is well known among all generations of cricket fans for his remarkable average of 99.94 in the longest format of the game. He played his last Test match on 1948. But still now no player has even reached near to his average in the longest format of the game.
The Don of cricket has played 52 test matches for Australia. In those 52 matches he scored 6996 runs with a massive average of 99.94 including 29 centuries and 13 half centuries with a career best score of 334.
Still now he holds the record for highest career rating points (961) in ICC Test batsman rankings. He is the only player to hit double centuries at four different batting positions in the longest format of the game.
On his 110th birth anniversary here are some remembrances and tributes in twitter:
