Australian cricket captain and great batsman Don Bradman passed away today, February 25, 2001 at the age of 93. Bradman had numerous records on the cricket field. This is a record that no cricketer in the world has been able to achieve till date. On the occasion of Bradman’s birth anniversary, let’s know about his record…
Bradman, who is known as the Don of Cricket, struck a chord in the minds of the bowlers by scoring a century in just 22 balls in 1931. At that time, no one had done such a breathless wash of bowlers on the cricket field. On 2 November 1931, a match was played between Black Heath XI and Lithgow XI. Bradman was fielded by the Black Heath XI. In this match he batted like the whole world had never seen before. Bradman single-handedly scored 256 runs for Black Heath in this match and Lithgow XI were given a target of 358 runs to win the match in the second innings.

Lithgow, who entered the field with a target of 358 runs for victory, ended his innings with 228 runs. Bradman’s team won by 129 runs. The 11 batsmen of Lithgow XI could not score as many runs as Bradman scored in this match. Bradman had hit 14 sixes and 29 fours.

In this match, Bradman completed his century in the first 3 overs of the match. Of course, back then there were 8 balls and not 6 balls in one over like today. Bradman plundered 33 runs in the first over, including 3 sixes and 3 fours. So there was a double and a single included.
He rained 40 runs in the second over. Bradman did not miss a single run. It included 4 sixes and 4 fours. He scored 27 runs in the third over and thus completed his century in 22 balls.
