    What was Bradman's favourite shot?

    Did he play it better than any of the leading modern batsman of recent years/decades (i.e. Kallis, Ponting, Lara etc...)?

    I believe it is the cut shot. But the shot has improved since the amateur days, didn't ya know? Today if you play a cut shot well and place it well, you get 4 runs but back in the amateur era, you ONLY got 4 runs..

    Heard he once put a bullet through a Dingo's eye at 150 yards, without harming the baby it was chewing.

    The same ones that Sachin plays, but he played them a bit less skilfully.

    I don't think he would have played it less skillfully tbh. His technique looked pretty sound from what I have seen.
