    A good spinner on a slow, turning subcontinental pitch might have tested him. He probably would not have come across such conditions often in his career.

    Definitely not. Bradman was never seriously troubled by any fast bowler, even on the bodyline tour he averaged over 50.

    If he was to struggle against anyone it would be a spinner - Hedley Verity got him out 11 times in Tests, more than anyone else.

    Is there really a need to take everything so seriously?!

    How was I to know you were joking? You seem to rate Harmison very highly.

    Sure the likes of Verity etc. got Bradman out more often than others, but in all reallity, there would be really no one who could stop the greatest batsman ever.

    Sure, possibly some of the great fast bowlers may have been able to get Bradman out, but IMO it would of been all too late as he would of probably scored a century at least by the time he would of been dismissed.

    To get someone like Bradman out would require extreme consistency and the ability to manipulate the ball as you wish. Bradman was a test batsmen personified and therefore you would have to be as patient with bowling as he was persistent with his batting. Eventually everyone cracks.

    i do believe that the likes of murali and warne would have tested him particularly on turning wickets aka SL.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    I seriously doubt Warne would have troubled him considering Tendulkar utterly humiliated Warne most times they faced eachother. Bradman himself admitted that Tendulkar played in a similar manner to the Don, but the Australian had a hugely superior record which suggests he may have been an upgraded Tendulkar.
