Bradman Connection Draft

Cricketer Of The Year
Was quoting from:

"Lala Amarnath Bhardwaj (11 September 1911 – 5 August 2000) was an Indian cricketer. He is considered to be the father figure of Indian cricket. He scored the first ever century for India in Test Cricket in 1933. He was independent India's first cricket captain and captained India in their first Test series win against Pakistan in 1952."

Though I can't argue with Nayudu.

That's fair. Just stated that normally Nayudu is considered a father figure of Indian cricket here.
