    The Black Bradman

    The Black Bradman

    While we are waiting for the name of George Headley to arrive in Steve Ferrier's countdown, Martin has decided to get his oar in first.
    JBMAC and James like this.

    Does that make Bradman the white George Headley? Funny I've never once heard him referred to as that

    I know people often referred to Headley as the black Bradman. What I'm saying is I've never once heard Bradman referred to as the white Headley.

    Chappell also made reference to the title when he was doing his synopsis of the Cricinfo ATG XI selections.

    Good article overall, just felt that you made a point of highlighting the bowlers he didn't face, but didn't acknowledge when he did face the front line bowlers and was successful.
    1st XI
    Hutton | Hobbs | Bradman* | Richards^ | Tendulkar | Sobers5^ | Gilchrist+ | Khan3 | Marshall1 | Warne4^ | McGrath2
    2nd XI
    Sutcliffe | Gavaskar* | Headley | Chappell^ | Lara^ | Kallis5^ | Knott+ | Hadlee3 | Ambrose2 | Lillee1 | Muralitharan4
    3rd XI
    Greenidge | Richards^ | Ponting^ | Pollock | Hammond^ | Worrell5* | Waite+ | Akram3 | Steyn1 | Holding2 | O'Reilly4
    4th XI
    Morris | Simpson^ | Sangakkara | Weekes^ | Border*^ | Walcott+ | Faulkner5 | Laker4 | Trueman1 | Garner3 | Donald2
