    And i saw bradman play....

    He strode to the wicket with his side one down,
    Not a big man and he had on a frown
    Some rated him the best they'd ever seen
    but this innings was to prove
    The best there has ever been
    He hooked the first ball to square leg for four
    Then a glance off his pads to fine leg for more
    The sun was out on that Brisbane day
    I was there at The Gabba and saw Bradman play.

    By lunch he was just short of a ton
    and the poms had no answer to
    To this Aussie son
    He'd bashed them, He'd thrashed them
    And was looking for more when down came the rain
    To help even the score
    No one left the Gabba that day just waited in the rain to watch Bradman play

    A career that ended in '48
    Was dotted with milestones no one can rate
    He'd hook them, He'd drive them, then go looking for more
    I suppose I was lucky on that Gabba day,
    When I sat in the bleachers and saw Bradman play

    That is brilliant!

    What year was that, btw? 1946/47 Ashes?

    Would have gone too, but had something else on that day.

    Just made that up...typical case scenario of Bradman coming in to bat. I first saw him in '46 but was at the gabba test in '36

    Should ask your missus.
    This was a serious post:

    You would need to check with CW Moderators.....There is no copyright on it from my side but under Copyright laws in this country once it is printed it is in the public domain BUT CW could claim copyright, if they wanted to, because it is in printed form on here. Fine line but check first eh
