1920-50 Bradman Cricket's greatest batsman
History's most colossal batsman is, in many respects, a colossal irrelevance. Nobody ever emulated 99.99 the one average that will never be average. None ever mimicked that barmy stance - bat between his feet, back-lift pointing towards gully. He did not play in Asia or Africa or the Caribbean. He did inspire cricket's first great cataclysm, Bodyline, but only briefly. From 1920 to 1950 he was roughly twice as good as anyone who ever had, or ever would, play the game. Then he quit and everything returned to normal.
