    Alastair Cook > Bradman

    Did the don ever score 235 not out at the Gabba? Didn't think so. I'm just saying what's on everyone's minds.

    I don't think there's any argument that can be made to the contrary.

    Bradman wasn't born on Xmas Day either, what a hack

    The boy is mint.

    Conversely, have you seen Bradman's recent form? Seems like he hasn't scored a run for years.

    The spanner in the works is that Sir Don Bradman made his runs against England, an infinitely better side than the one Alistair Cook scored his runs against

    Niiice.

    In other news, it turns out Cook's averaging 56.22 with 4 centuries this year. Wasn't he supposed to be under pressure?

    Bradman was never a chorister at St Paul's cathedral.

    To be fair, he was under a bit of pressure before he scored that century against Pakistan.

    It's great for Jason Gillespie that he's now got rid of the tag "worst batsman to make a test double ton".
