    Best batsman to partner Bradman

    Not necessarily the 2nd best batsman, but who IYO would be the ideal batsman of all time to complement The Don in batting partnerships so as to produce the best results.

    And the reasons for your selection.

    ( did not want to prompt with a poll - so make your selection count )

    Sobers? We can have a left-right combination going.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Morris and Barnes did a pretty fair job at the time so I would have to say them...

    Someone who could counter bodyline bowling. Would need to be naturally strong on the on-side and be able to quickly spot a short leg side delivery and hook it or pull every single one, and thus ridicule the whole leg theory thing. Left hand would be a plus, but not as much as the above.

    For some reason Inzamam comes to mind for this, not a particular Inzi fan. Cant run much between wickets, but between him and the Don, perhaps they wouldnt need to.

    Alternatively Jardine himself could probably show him best how to take a blow and not flinch. Ironic combination.
