    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    6 failures in 52 matches is not even close to proof.

    It's proof that Bradman was useless when he didn't get to 5 runs, averaging a pathetic figure.

    But not proof that he was overrated, which was your original contention.

    Obviously everyone will have a low average if you only include scores under 5, it is not the average in such instances but the frequency of these scores that matters.

    Bradman couldn't handle pressure too.

    We talk of Tendulkar's pressure for getting his 35th test hundred.

    Bradman just needed to score four runs in his last test innings to keep his final average in three digits but couldnt handle the pressure

    "Bradman just needed to score four runs in his last test innings to keep his final average in three digits but couldnt handle the pressure"
    Jokes aside the amazing thing about that episode is that neither Bradman nor the public knew that he needed those four runs. Shows how different the game was back then compared to the statistics-obsessed present. Can you imagine the amount of hype there would be today if a player was close to such a unique landmark in his last test? And the letdown if he failed?

    I'm pretty sure they would've known to be honest.

    The reason why this was not publicised at the time is that no one could have known that it was going to be his last test innings.

    He'd have needed 104 or 105 in the second then ?
