Sir Don Bradman was dismissed for a duck in his final Test innings
Sir Don Bradman the GOAT was dismissed for a duck in his final Test innings. All eyes were on Bradman to play the last Test of his career. Bradman was just 4 runs away from 6,000 Test runs. If he could score at least 4 runs, the batting average in Tests would be three figures.
Ray Lindwall, Keith Miller, and Bill Johnston all bowled out England for 52 in the first innings. Ray Lindwall alone took 6 wickets for Ajit. Miller and Johnston took two wickets each.
Opportunity in front of the visiting Ajit at Kennington Oval in London to make a gap in 1 inning. Sid Burns and Arthur Morris made 118 in the opening over. Aussie captain Don Bradman took the wicket when Sid Burns was dismissed for 61 runs.
However, on 14 August 1948, Eric Hollis did not allow Bradman to score these 4 runs. Probably the best delivery of his career. Defeated Bradman in Google. The best batsman of all time became bold with the second ball of his game.
Bradman averaged 101.39 at the time of the toss. He had scored 206 runs (33 and 163 *) in the previous match in Leeds. Also, his record at the Oval was enviable. Earlier, he batted in three innings and scored 232, 244, and 6! In the same year, he played an innings of 146, and 127 runs against Sar at the Oval.
The game that gave Bradman two hands full deprived him of that game in the last inning. He had to return to the toilet without a run. Bradman ended his 52-Test career. Next to the name were 7998 runs, 29 centuries, 13 fifties. The last 7 calls of his career increased the regret, that the average stopped at 99.94!
