Sir Donald Bradman
Don Bradman was an awesome sportsman who taught himself to play cricket by hitting a cricket ball with a stump off his family's water tank. He went on to shatter world records. His batting average still stands - 99.94.
This book is great for school projects or if you simply want a good read about this amazing, inspiring man, who stood only 170 cm tall but was the youngest player to score a test century. In his first season of international cricket he scored 2,960 runs with a batting average of 98.66. It was this brilliance which led to the invention of the dangerous 'Bodyline' method, by the English team, just to combat Bradman's skill.
