"Sport is such an important part of our national identity that is hardly possible that a sportsperson can come along and transcend the sport they play. But it does happen, every generation or so, someone comes along with skills so finely tuned, that they change the game they play and forever become synonymous with that sport. More than that, their skills and attitudes come to symbolise that sport. For millions of people in Australia and around the world The Don was Australian cricket. Sir Donald Bradman was, beyond any argument, the greatest batsman who ever lived and the greatest cricketer of the 20th century. In that time, his reputation not merely as a player but as an administrator, selector, sage and cricketing statesman only increased."--Provided by publisher.
